I found some cute little orange trimmed post it notes in the Dollar Spot section at Target a month ago and knew it would work perfectly for this! Since the notepad itself is a 3 1/2" square, I needed to make my holder just a smidgen larger. So I took a piece of dark brown sturdy cardstock and cut it 4" x 8 1/2". Then I scored it twice at 4" and 4 1/2". You can see below.....
Here is the inside (I just took some pop dots and centered the note pad in place):
I thought Turkey Day was perfect for mine and used some Basic Grey Indian Summer designer paper. I stamped the turkey with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored him with Copics. Then added the words "Turkey Day" from one of the sentiments and also used one of the cutest sayings in the whole set: "First one done, does dishes" I figured the one who is organizing the meal, buying the ingredients, cooking most of the meal can find some relief in sight if someone ELSE cleaning up! :o) I know my daughter was a HUGE help last year and I am sure she will be this year as well.
I hope you have enjoyed this quick little project and they would make great little gifts for teachers, co-workers, friends and family. I like to make a little assortment of hand made gifts and this would certainly be something nice and easy to include in a gift basket! Have a wonderful day!
