Why? Why? Why? Weekend Project!

Why can't I just walk by those dollar spots at Michael's, Joann's and Target???? I'm sure DH is asking the same question too!

I got this cute little notebook at Joann's last week. They have TONS of them so if you want to make them they may still have some. I only bought one so when I left the store there were lots left!!!

These little notebooks measure 3" x 5". And the white paper inside is lined!!! At the bottom is an elastic band to hold the cover down in your purse. At the top is a tag. I used the smaller Stampin' Up! tag punch. I punched out two pieces and layered them between the existing tag. After punching holes in the tag I cut a slit in the top so I could just slip it on top of the existing one. I really didn't want to untie their hemp. I wasn't sure if I'd get it back just right. An their tag was just a bit smaller so it was very easy to hide.

I used the Stampin' Up! "Close as a Memory" set. To color in the flowers and stems I used markers. The background was done using the "Boho Backgrounds" set. I stamped the image using Pretty in Pink ink on the new Pink Pirouette card stock. It's such pretty card stock. I love the softness of these two colors together.

The word "notes" was done using a custom stamp I had made. You can add any wording you want there or simply remove the tag and string. It looks good without them too!

These would be a fun Make N' Take, Hostess Gift, Customer Appreciation Gift, Stamp Camp item or even for a Craft Fair.
