An Apple a Day….

Thank God for Mother In Laws who put children to bed!!  That means I can pop on here and write a quick post with the pictures of the Teachers Gift that I made.  Now I totally got the idea off of the net, however, I changed the measurements to suit my own notepad etc.  Very easy to do and you could whip up quite a few of these for Teacher Gifts, Christmas Gifts etc etc.   It’s a little note book / compendium. Below you can see the front cover.

The next picture is the inside view.  I used the DSP to cut the cute little apples out of and also stamped an apple on each page of the notebook.  I used a mini calendar for 2009 and decorated a jumbo paperclip with scallop circles.  I used the outline Alphabet stamped on the Summer Picnic DSP for the Teachers initial.  The post-it notes are cut down to size using my big cutter.  I just fiddled with it all until it fitted!  I used my scissors to carefully snip out a small slit on either fold so that I could thread my ribbon through and use it to hold the pen in place.

THis is just a closeup of the little bookmark paperclip.  Very easy but a wee bit cute!

So there you have it.  A very quick and easy teacher / Christmas etc gift!!  If you would like my measurements, please email me ([email protected]).

Don’t forget to enter in my blog candy from the post below!!  See you all next week!!

Happy Stamping!!!
