How are all you crafters doing with the last-minute Christmas rush? I needed to take a break before finishing up a few more cards and thought I'd work on something other than Christmas! About a month and a half ago, my GF Joy sent me a whole pack of these cute glittered polka dot CS and I've been wanting to do something with them so here is what I made:
I've had these mini pens for a while and decided to make a note book cover for the 3" x 3" Post-It pads. You've seen many versions of these and I made mine to fit the height of the pen that is about 3.25" high. It's hard to see the polka dot CS on the cover because I practically covered it up with some lace trim on the bottom, ribbon, a sentiment stamped on a Labels Eight die cut, stamped a sentment from SU!, and added a pink rose on a MS Vintage Doile punched out of pink vellum. Then of course there is the sweet and adorable Lazy Summer Day Tilda colored with Copics. I added some polka dots to her outfit. On the inside cover, I die-cut a piece of the DP with the Labels Eight die and attached a 2011 calendar. Then I thought I should put them in a box or bag and add some treats (Toffee Macadamia Shortbread cookies):
The BEST part is, back in mid-November, I won a template from Adela Rossol of Creations by AR. She has so many wonderful templates and I had a hard time selecting one and chose this, and of course purchased a couple more. This template is called "3-Pocket Caddy" and was fun and fast to make! Thank you so very much Adela. She is one of the hosts on PaperCraft Planet's 3-D Tuesday challenges. There's so much to learn from PCP and all the talented gals there.
Finally, here is what it looks like in the caddy, sans ribbon, I plan to tie on the handles. Below is also an inside view of the caddy. The note pad fit perfectly!
