Just Believe Notebook and Beaded Pen Weekend Project

Does this box look familiar?  It should, it is what the large clear block came in.  I know, I just have to save everything.  But see, it actually came in handy.  I believe this is the last clear box container that I had left.  I managed to use them all.  Recycling is such a good thing!!  

The backing of the container has a piece of cardboard (from a pack of 12" x 12" decorative paper) and a piece of Cherry Cobbler decorative paper taped to it.  I wanted the container to have a nice completed look.

The notebook contains about 50 sheets of card stock.  I redid the card that Terri had made for me and added the "notes" the front of it.  

I also included a beaded pen.  I printed out a page from the 1st Edition download onto a 8-1/2" x 11" label.  I cut out the length I needed for the pen and sponged some Crumb Cake and More Mustard over it to give it the vanilla look since I didn't have any large labels like that in vanilla.  White was just too bright for the pen.  

I put the label on the pen and then the double stick paper and then rolled the pen in the micro beads.  And that is it.  So easy and quick to do!  I put the pen in one of those 1" x 8" cellophane bags and folded the flap down a bit more than usual because the pen isn't all that long!  It made the pen look more expensive and impressive too!

Now I have a nice pen and pad gift in a great package all ready for the craft fair!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
