Sweet Taffy and Brights Collection Jr. Legal Pad Holders

  Jr. Legal Pad HolderHi Everyone! I love a great pad holder, don't you?! And this is a great project that uses a core group of items. Then add stamped images to finish the look.
Pad Holder with Pen

If you follow me, you know I'm a fan of getting the paper collections. Reason? You get a variety of colors!

You can make up to 15-20 of these pads with 2 core items:
*Sweet Taffy Designer Paper
*Brights Collection 12"x12" Cardstock (20 sheets – 2 each of 10 colors)

~15 pads if you mat the designer paper
20 pads if you don't mat or substitute Whisper White cardstock as the mat layer.

How To Make a Jr. Legal Pad Notebook Cover with Pen:

Start with 8-1/2" x 12" Card Stock.
Score along the 12" side at 5-1/2", 6", 6-1/2"

To make the pen holder: Fold at the 6". Trim up to the score line. Pop out the holder section.

Add adhesive as shown. TIP! Go ahead and write on your paper so you know where to add adhesive. I used Fast Fuse but Sticky Strip could be used too.

Second picture is what it should look like after you add adhere it down.


DSCN5162Tip! If you jr. legal is a true 5×8 (some smaller which is actually better) it will fit exactly in the space from score line to right edge. Test your pad first before you do any gluing.

I like to cover the pad top: 1" x 5" or trim to size. And stamp the first page – if giving as a gift you can even write a little note here!

Wine Cork Table Name Card Place Settings

DSCN5070Hi Everyone! Let just say…So Cute (me and my niece say it ZooooeCute)! My sister showed me this Pinterest project of using wine corks as Table Tent holders…BRILLANT!

I go through phases of which Framelit I gravitate towards. Lately it's been Deco Collection Framelits. This would be cute with straightforward rectangles sizes too. But if you have a Big Shot…Big Shot right? {smile}

The Annual Catalog has 2 stamp sets I enjoy so much especially leading up to Spring. They are: Flower Shop that work with the coordinating Pansy Punch & Papillion Potpourri which works with the coordinating punches Elegant Butterfly & Bitty Butterfly (bitty not used in project).  

DSCN5062For the Elegant Butterfly, I stamped in Calypso Coral then sponged with Blushing Bride. These are the colors in Best Year Ever Designer Paper (paper FREE during Sale-a-bration with $50 order). I did the same thing with the Pansy images only stamped tone on tone with Hello Honey ink on Hello Honey card stock. Stamped then sponged with Blushing Bride again.

General Instructions: CAREFULLY cut a slit on the top of the wine cork. Die cut the paper and decorate – again for a WOW decorate both sides. Add a sentiment. In my sample, Happy Easter from Teeny Tiny Wishes (My opinion – best all purpose sentiment stamp set one can own!)

DSCN5068Idea!  Use both sides of name tent card. The side facing the seat has the name, so Dee, Dad and Karla know where to sit. The back side is decorated like the very top photo. So those around the table can enjoy your creations. Go simple like the Karla sample or all-out decorate both sides like the Dee. Other IDEAS – use it to number the tables or BELOW to let your guests know where you want them to put their carry-in.

DSCN5065At the end of the event, let the guest take their name cards home, you gather up the wine corks and save them for the next gathering!
