My friend Leslie has been making a lot of mini-file folder-notepad covers. She uses file folders for her notepad covers, but I was too lazy to scrounge around for one. But I still wanted to make one.
I ended up using good old white cardstock for my base and Emporium paper from CTMH.. Loving the little birdhouses in Any Birdy Home (Artful Inkables) as much as I do, I decided to make a little covered notepad as a gift, since I already made the matching card....right? So I colored up a relatively duplicate image (same colors anyway, tee hee) and cut it with my favorite Nestabilities(TM) die, Labels Five. The scrunchy flower is made with five cardstock scallops, centered with one of our new colonial white brads (click on the image for a closeup). Did you notice the birdie sitting on the birdhouse? She's a little Martha punch that you've seen me use a few times this month. So cute!!!!
See how simple the inside is? The whole thing is held together with tiny magnets (see it on the back of the flower?), but you could use Velcro as well. Again, the magnets were on my desk and I was too lazy to get up and pull the Velcro out of a drawer. Good grief!
A funny story. I called Alan the other night and he was making pizza. Seriously....he was making homemade pizza dough! This was a first for him. The funny part is that he had to ask me "how much is a tablespoon?"!!! HA! Luckily he had a quarter cup measuring cup so he was able to use that (no measuring spoons in Gainesville, I reckon). But here he has taken Advanced Calculus, Quantum Physics, Nuclear-mechanical-whatever....but didn't know how many tablespoons were in a cup! I reckon his mama did not teach him.......tee hee!!!! I wonder how the pizza turned out! I'm afraid to ask - ha! But just thinkin' about it is making me hungry.
