Note Pad Holder - A Nice Christmas Stocking Stuffer

Here is another great Christmas stocking stuffer project, a note pad or post-it holder. This is actually a great giveaway on any occasion. I've been crazy about the vintage look and used some distressing techniques on this project using Tim Holtz distress ink pads. I embossed the pattern paper with my Cuttlebug blending the color the distress ink with the colors of the pattern paper. The result is simply stunning! It gives that very chic vintage look on the paper. The cover or holder is a very simple template made in Studio using the rounded rectangle shape from the drawing tools. I hate using the perforated cut for the folds so I manually scored the folds of the holder with my Martha Stewart scoring board.  I used magnetic disks for the closure as shown on the video tutorial. I put a layer of paper on the inside flaps to hide the magnetic disks. I've seen other tutorials that used velcro instead. The embellishment is the other half of a Chinese button pair that you can find in fabric/notions stores. This is actually color white which I colored with ordinary dye ink pad using a foam applicator that's why the color matches the paper very nicely. The size of the note pads I used is 3" x 3". The ones made on the video tutorial were 2" x 2" which I'll be making, too. You can make the 2 sizes and bundle them with a ribbon which will make very cute presents. You can even personalize the holders by putting your recipients monogram on the cover.





Here is the video tutorial where I got the idea from:


I have the template in Studio file and can share it for free.
