Santa Theme Scratch Pad Holder Stocking Stuffer

 I've been making some fun Stocking Stuffers lately.  It's always great to have some fun things to put in the stockings that don't cost an arm and a leg.  And what better to put in the stocking than a scratch pad.  We play games on Christmas day and it's nice to have something to write on to keep score!  

This is a quick project to make too.  You just cut and score the card stock, punch the buttons, buckle and the "fir", add a belt and you're done!!!

You need a piece of red card stock cut 6" x 12".  Score it on the long side at 4", 4-3/8" and 8-1/4".  Fold the score lines inward.

Take the Word Window punch and punch the far right panel about 1/4" down and all across the top of that panel.  Be sure to leave 1/4" on each side of the panel. Using the window punch allows you to refill this note holder!!
Next fold the panel you punched inward.  Use a bone folder to make a sharp crease.  With the panel open glue the far right edge (the 6" end) and the bottom of that panel.  Use your bone folder to help the glue to adhere to the card stock.  Insert the scratch pad and fold over the other two scored pieces.  The top piece may need to be trimmed 1/8".  You will see this once the scratch pad has been inserted and the other score lines folded in.

Decorate the front as desired.  Here I used the lace punch to make the fir.  I used a 1" circle punch for the buttons and I used a 3/4" and a 1-3/4" square punches for the buckle.  And that is it.  Very simple and very quick to make! 

These are also great for a Make n Take, Stamp Camp and you can even sell them at your local craft fairs.  Oh and they do make fun Stocking Stuffers!!!  For more stocking stuffer ideas just click here.
