Notebook Gift

Here is another cute and easy gift idea for the holidays. This notebook holder fits a junior legal pad (they're like 5 x 7) and is made from a sheet of 12x12 paper. You fold and score the paper to fit around the legal pad and pen and then decorate the cover however you like. I wanted to use the  pretty papers from the festival of prints designer paper pack, but they are a little bit shorter than the front so I framed it with a coordinating cardstock layer and added some ribbon to dress it up. Then I cut out the cool label shape from the apothecary accents die set with the big shot and stamped the sentiment "you are simply wonderful" onto it. This I added on with some bakers twine. For a finishing touch I added paper inside the pen. You just  need a little strip and then you take apart the pen and wrap it around the ink shaft and then put it back together. The RSVP pens work best for this. 

I forgot to take a photo of the inside but I also covered the top of the legal pad that is above where you tear off the pages with designer paper so it's pretty on the inside too!
