Doodle This Weekend Project!

Here's a fun project for the weekend! These make great gifts and sell well at craft fairs! I will be posting the PDF file for this on Splitcoaststampers and will add a link to it here when I figure out how I did it before. It takes me a while to remember how to do something again unless I've done it more than a couple of times. I'm not that computer savvy!!

Anyway, for those of you who have taken time to check out my entire blog, way down towards it's beginning I posted some snowman note holders. I had gotten those at Michael's and "altered" them. Well, since Michael's no longer carries them I decided to make my own. This way I won't have to pay that much for the item or run to every Michael's in my area (3 of them!!!) to purchase all I can! And think of the gas money I'm saving too!!! These are made from chipboard! EVERYONE has chipboard. Check your cupboard. All of your cereal, cake mixes, boxed dinners, etc. are made from chipboard! SO run to your recycling and dig out your cereal boxes!! They have now become a precious commodity!!!

The link to the PDF file with complete instructions to make this will be posted soon. In the meantime you can cut your copier paper to 3" by 4". You'll need at least 50 to 60 pieces, more depending on how full you want the box.

Okay, here's the link to the PDF file I posted on SplitCoastStampers! Have fun!!

I am just LOVING these "Doodle" sets! And the paper that goes along with it!!

Thank you for looking!

Very cute holder, I make something similar but have to give your layout a try. Get this my neighbor was burning copy paper from a business just because he needed fire starter. I about cried, now I have reams of blue copy paper I cut up to make scratch paper pads as well. Can't get better than free, I will try to post a link today. Great JOB!

I went back to SCS and found the template but it will not work it says the file is damaged. I have tried it a couple different ways. If you have time can you post directions again. Thank you, it is worth doing.

I am unable to reply to questions sent in the comments. I am not sent any information other than your name, comment and time it was sent.

To answer your question Sara, I read on the Splitcoast post that you need to save it to your desktop (or somewhere on your computer) and open it from there. The file doesn't want to open from the SCS website for some strange reason. I will go there and post it again and see if it's any better but try saving it to your computer before you open it and see if it works that way. So sorry to hear that you are having problems with it.

Another option is to send me your email address (you can do it in the comment section and I'll just reject the comment so your message is not posted here) and I'll send it out to you personally!

Thanks SO much for your interest in my blog and projects!
