NotePad for Ms. Urbon -Day 2 with Michele Kovack

Welcome to day two with Michele Kovack. Today Michele has another great project sure to inspire you to make gifts for the Holidays using products from JustRite Stampers.


This was a magnetic notepad holder and pen from the dollar store. I am kicking myself that I didn't take a "before" picture....because it was fairly ugly! I decided to make this a gift for my student teacher. I used October Afternoon paper to cover the board. I used a spray adhesive to adhere it. I like to sand the edges to make it somewhat distressed and also to blend it in a bit. I then covered the top of the pad of paper with the designer paper as well. For the ribbon, I did use Aleene's Fabric Glue.

I used a glittered leaf from Making Memories, a button threaded with twine and some vintage book paper for the star. The name was stamped using Brayton Font in the Harmony Rectangular stamper. I added 2 teeny rhinestones to the flowers around Ms. Urbon's name. I opened up the pen and inserted some designer paper in there to dress it up a bit. The "pen holder" originally had a grey piece of paper there. I re placed it with black ribbon. I just tacked it down a bit with the fabric glue. Now my student teacher will have a handy dandy notebook that can go on the side of her file cabinet. AND it is a lot cuter than Steve's! (You know, Blues Clues? Handy dandy notebook?......get it? ) Hope you enjoyed today's project!

Keep us in mind....."When it needs to be JustRite".
