Mini Notepad

Hello, all! Hope you are having a great weekend. I have had a rough week. First tending to a sick child, then getting sick myself! Boo. And I have no idea how he does it, by my husband manages to NEVER get sick! Instead, my daughter and I are like sickie twins - I get it, she gets it. She gets it, I get it! Ugh! So, forgive me for not going into great detail about this next project, but I have had a productive day (all things considered) and I have some great Christmas projects to share with you in the next day or two! When the going gets tough, the tough gets stamping!

This is another project for Purple Onion Designs using the Date Me stamp set. It's a mini note pad holder, with a magnetic clip. It was super simple to make! I just layered a few patterned papers, cutting them out with my circle classic and scallop Nestabilities dies. The notebook paper was cut with a die, too. (This is a great way to use up old notebooks that are partly scribbled on!) After adhering the layers, I notched out the top using a circle punch so that the clip would fit down low enough to "catch" the notebook paper, as those pieces are not adhered down. I hope that makes sense...

So, speaking of notes, do you need a little help getting organized for the holidays? If so, stay tuned for my next project!
