Gearing up for bazaar season

It's that time of year again! Yup, that's right folks, Christmas is a comin'. This year times are tough for many. One way to make those pennies stretch a little farther is to make your own gifts. (or you could buy things from me at a craft sale and just say you made them! j/k lol)

This is one of the little things I am making to sell but they are also really simple and easy to do yourself!

This note pad holder is made using a SU! clear mount case. You get 4 of these for $5.95 making this project easy on the pocketbook too! I bought a bunch of Jr. Legal pads from my local office supply store and for about $3 they cut down all 12 of them to 6 inches long. I just replaces the label at the top with patterned paper. After decorating the insert I just slid it in and voila! 

I first saw this idea on the Chic N Scratch blog with Angie Kennedy but I've seen them all over. I think one of the ideas that I saw was to put a make it Christmas themes and put a little pocket on the inside cover to hold receipts. Great way even through out the year to keep track of gifts. :)

Hope you have a fantastic weekend!! 

Keep the paper cuttin'!


Don't forget to leave some love if you feel the love!
