Christmas Lists

I found these cute notepads at Michael's and thought they would be perfect to make little gifts out of. I'd seen a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers where they used a mini-legal notepad. I modified the idea to fit the square notepads that I bought.

I used Lil Lolita Christmas Evie colored with Copics. The papers are from My Mind's Eye and I added a snowflake sticker from Jolee. I thought this would make a cute gift for someone.

I'd like to enter this project in the following challenges:
1. Lil Lolita Boutique Challenges - the last one :( - sketch
2. C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #78 - Christmas present
3. Charisma Cardz #47 - one for the girls
4. Creative Inspirations #48 - Christmas gifts

If you get the same notepads, here are my directions. I removed the magnet from the back of the notepad - it wasn't very stuck on. The cardstock cover is 5 1/2" x 11 1/2". I scored a fold line at 5 1/2" and 6". I adhered the notepad to the cardstock using Terrifically Tacky Tape. Then I decorated the front.

There's a lot going on this week. I'll be announcing a new Latte Lounge Challenge tomorrow. Tuesday is the last day for my blog candy (it's not too late to enter), the Some Odd Girl Blog Hop, The Greeting Farm blog hop, AND a new freebie challenge at I Did It Creations Forum! Friday is the start of the Christmas Celebration at The Latte Lounge.

Happy Crafting!
