Matchbook Notepad Holder

I just realized I didn’t post anything yesterday – oops.  I took Kyle and Tyler out to lunch and shopping yesterday.  And I was finishing up senior gifts for the Band Banquet that we have tonight – books created in My Digital Studio – I need to wrap them and add some printed tags, and then I made 8 1/2 x 11 pages in My Digital Studio and sent them to the local photo shop to print as 8×10 – sales yesterday for $1 a print! – bought frames at the store – and put those together last night.  I also came home and made Turkey Lasagna – which seems to be Greg’s favorite meal these days.  It was our last home made dinner with Kyle before he goes to California on Saturday – he’ll be gone all summer working out there.  Plus Tyler got a job yesterday too – yeah!  Then we spent about  2 hours trying to find the social security cards – they were not in the safe place they were supposed to be in  – but I did find them.  Any way on to a cute project.

Do you need a quick little gift for a teacher or mom?  Check out this project that we made at Stamper’s Club Friday night.  I think everyone really liked this one and it wasn’t hard to make.

Cut a piece of card stock – I used Basic Gray – to 10-3/4 x 5-1/2.  Put it on the Simply Scored and score at 4-1/4, 4-1/2 and 9-1/2.  On the end near the 9-1/2 score line punch with the scallop border punch.  I also sponged the scallops with Basic Gray ink to make them show up against the front.  Put an Antique Brad in the center of the folded flap to hold it down.  Then the front just tucks under the scalloped edge to close.  This is a matchbook style folder.

To decorate the front I used two stamp sets – Elizabeth and Clearly For You – both of these are on the retiring stamp set list.  Stamp Elizabeth in Basic Gray on the front.  Stamp the Clearly for You images on some Confetti White card stock (also retiring) – I used Sahara Sand ink and Basic Gray ink – punch with the large oval punch – add a bitty flower with a brad in the center and layer on a Baja Breeze scallop oval punch.  Add a strip of the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper (the gray print) to the front and layer the oval over the Elizabeth stamped image.  Tie a piece of Baja Breeze Seam Binding in a knot and add with a glue dot above the oval.

On the inside I added a notepad with some Sticky Strip – stamp the pages if you like.  I luckily found Baja Breeze pads at the dollar store!  I also added a pen – there is a strip of the Gray designer paper in the barrel so it matches the project and a piece of the ribbon is tied on the top – use a mini glue dot to hold the ribbon.

I hope you like this project!
