Note Pad Holder

Here is the last item everyone made at the Christmas Class. This gift could easily be themed for any occassion. They make perfect back to school gifts for your child's teacher.
The New Concord Crush is right on for my daughters school colors. I am in love with the new In Colors so I paired it with Pear Pizzazz and Blushing Bride. The main base is 8.5x11 and scored at 1/2", 3/4", 6", 6-1/4". The not pad itself is 5x8 and I got at my local office supply place. You can easily change the dimentions to fit whatever size notepad you use. For this one the cardstock just touches edges, so the decorative strips were added to go over the seam. Both decorative strips were punches with the Eyelet Border Punch. I punch a couple of row with the word window punch on the back of the cover to slip the notepad into. A few slits in the sides and the ribbon helps hold the pen in place. I helped it close with a couple small pieces of velcro. They are not completely necessary, but felt they would help. The title is stamped in Concord Crush with the Jumble Alphabet and the flourish is from "Elements of Style" and stamped with a White Craft Pad.
