On the Eleventh Day of Christmas...

Are you still looking for last minute gifts?

Well I've got a great idea for you that will take you very little time to make.

Designer: Christine Ousley

Winter Night, Snowy Serenade, Double Dot paper, Snowy Serenade 12x12 Cardstock Stickers, iCandy Brads Ensemble, Snowy Serenade Buttons & Bling, Snowy Serenade Flowers





Even with all of our computers, phones, PDA's and such, so many still enjoy having a piece of paper handy. Writing a quick note to a friend, passing some information to someone you just met or writing down some last minute additions to the grocery list are a few reasons to give this notebook and envelope holder to a friend or coworker or maybe just make one for yourself.

The base is very simple. Just a piece of Double Dot cardstock any size with a 1/4 inch section scored in the middle to hold the pen. I then attached pieces of patterned paper to the each side for decoration. The left side is a notepad that I created using notebook paper. I stacked the papers together, put some glue on top and wrapped another strip of patterned paper around the top and back, then added brads for extra stability. Then I attached to the left hand side of the cover.
On the right side I created a pocket to hold envelopes. I just scored the patterned paper on each side to create a fold so the pocket had some depth. You can use a circle punch to create the notch in the envelope before attaching to right hand side cover.

As I close my post I want to wish everyone a safe and wonderful Holiday Season.

Thanks for the great idea today Christine!! And we're onto Day 11 of our Giveaway!!

What could it be???!! Something we don't see too much of in some of our areas this time of the year!

On the Eleventh Day of Christmas My True Love Gave To Me....
An assortment of Bo Bunny's Pressed Petals!

How's that? We can't leave the flowers out and our flowers coordinate perfectly with our lines, finish out cards and layouts with just the right touch!

Leave a comment today to be entered to win some of our flowers! We'll close the comments out tomorrow when we arrive to the final day....Day Twelve! See you then!!
