Notecard Book {TSG}

Good morning, It's ABC Friday on the There She Goes Blog! Years ago my friends and I would have what we call a "Craft-a-thon". There were about 8 of us consistently and at first we would have crops and there was always somebody that would show up and not have any mojo. They would sit and chat or just get frustrated that they didn't have any mojo. So then my friend and I had the idea for each of us to create a project and bring enough for everybody to make it and "teach" them the project. It was a hit, we continued to do this for about 5 years quarterly. There were all different levels of talent and some would make cards while others came up with some other type of crafty project like candle making. We had a blast.

The point of that story is because one of those crafty dates inspired today's post. A uber talented friend of mine, Samantha, showed us how to make these cute little notepad holders.
I used the super cute Smarty Pants stamp set from There She Goes.

 
Samantha also gave us some extra note pads. I can't remember where they came from, however, I do know I have seen long note pads/grocery list in the dollar areas of some of the local craft stores. They might work, you may just have to tweak the dimensions to fit your particular pad.

 
I colored all of it with Copic Markers. The paper is some old scrapbook paper that I had in my stash. I added a button and twine to finish it off.


Thanks for stopping by today.
