Just a Note

Hi everyone!  Once we are closing in on November, I start thinking of fun little ideas for gifts or even favors for holiday gatherings and parties.  I love something I can make quick, easy, yet cute!  Even better if I can slip a gift card inside!  This project is a perfect example:

These note pads are very easy to make, which means you can make a lot of them quickly for a great little gift that anyone can use.  You can personalize them to any occasion by using different patterned papers.  I used a fall theme for this one.

The Unique Laser Designs Music Notes are a perfect touch to give them a little extra pizzazz!  These are the ULD pieces I used:

                                          W-1071L Music Notes 1"

Even better....since it's a set of 10, you can make at least three note pads with one set.  Again, great for making a large could even use a personal name instead of the word "notes" and they could be used as place cards at a party.

The base is simply a 8" by 3&1/4" piece of cardstock, scored at 3", 3&1/2", 6&1/2" and  7".  Here's a peek at the holds a standard size post-it note pad:

The closure is a piece of ultra thin velcro....but regular velcro works just as well.

On the music notes, I used Walnut Stain Distress Paint and then when dry, brushed Black Soot Distress ink on the edges to give the notes some depth and shading....again, I was thinking quick and easy so I can make a lot of these:

Thanks for stopping by the blog today....hope you are inspired to get that holiday crafting started....a lot of great ideas in the Unique Laser Designs store....check back soon for more ideas!
