Note Pad Holder

Happy Friday! Are you all ready for the weekend? Friday marks the beginning of a new challenge over at Flaunt It Fridays. For this week's challenge we are flaunting the skull from the Mini Monsters cartridge on page 65. If you would like to enter our challenge please make a NON-Halloween project and we challenge you to make something different from what you made last week, for example if you made a card last week make a layout, altered item, etc. this week.

Here is what I came up with:





I found these cute little mini memo pads in a pack of 5 from the dollar store, so I decided to make a little mini notepad cover for this week's challenge. They are so simple to make. I cut my cardstock to 10.5" by 3.75" and scored at 5 1/8" and 5 3/8". Attched the notbook onto the inside back cover with some sticky strip and decorated the front. Easy Peasy! I haven't quite figured out what I will be using it for yet. I have thought about a food journal, a password keeper, or dare I say it.....a record of my crafty spending. Yikes! I am trying to get better this year and only buy what I need versus every cute thing I see. haha! Yeah right! Wish me luck on that! :)

I hope you liked my project and I am looking forward to seeing what you create for this week's challenge. So, head on over to Flaunt It Friday's and let us see what you come up with. Have a great crafty day!


Supplies:
Cricut--Mini Monsters (skull cut out at 2.5")
Cardstock--Melon Mambo (SU!), Black (Recollections), White (Georgia Pacific)
Border Punch--Scallop Sentiment (Fiskars)
Misc.--iRock, Offray ribbon, white signo gel pen, 3.5" by 5" notepad from dollar store.

I absolutely love this idea!!! Good luck on the shopping my friend. I told myself I wasn't going to buy anything scrap related this year nor any cricut carts. The only 2 I could get are the new Disney ones. Yikes

Let's push on towards our goal. We can do it!!
