I did manage to start making some cute little gifts for some of my scrappy friends. These are post-it note holders using Zutter 4X4 acrylic and chipboard covers. Just cover the chipboard in your preferred patterned paper, trim the acrylic with paint, then punch and bind. I adhere the post-it notepad to the inside of the chipboard after binding so it doesn’t get in the way. A few quickie embellishments and voila! I will be cranking more of these out in the wee hours of the night when the house is sleeping. I try to buy cute colors of the note pads when they are on sale at the office supply and then find papers I like to match. Give it a try.
Tomorrow is December 1. Can Christmas be only a tad over three weeks away?!?! Yikes. Hope you enjoy your countdown to the holidays. And I WILL be back on my diet tomorrow :)
Footnote: The cover is acrylic, edged with brown paint with a ribbon and flower on the bottom front. The chipboard forms the back cover, and the post-it pad is attached to the inside back cover. The post-it pad is a bright blue, so may be difficult to distinguish against the patterned paper.
