Quick and Easy Note Pad Holders


Once Upon a Spring Time Notebook Holders Clare Chervil Graphic 45
Whop Whop its the weekend, the first day of the school holidays and no rain........ so far.    I've been rooting through all my left over papers that have been sitting in the cupboard for ages and decided to use some of them to make some notebook holders for my stall at the craft fair.  It didn't take long to transform two sheets of paper and some chipboard into a gorgeous gorgeous little gift that would be great for stocking fillers, table top sales, charity fund raising events and birthday gifts too.  A great little make to do with the children too. I used the Once Upon a Springtime papers for the three above, decorating the front with the cut out fairy frames and a little bit of glitter........

  2. Hi Clare, It's been a while I know (due to ill-health) but I'm much better now and still here. Yay! It's been a while since I've done any crafting of any description but I just loved your fab video and am looking forward to giving your notebook "a go". Needless to say I'm gradually catching up with all of your previous posts which so far look great! Having had a quick look at your Workshop schedule for the remainder of 2015 it looks as if we here in South Yorkshire won't be seeing you this time round. Never mind, hopefully we'll see you next year. It's good to be back.....Take care

  4. These are beautiful Clare and so quick to do!!! I had taken a class a long time ago on something similar only we couldn't replace the pad and when we asked if there was a way to do that she said no and what do you care just throw it away it's only paper!!! At the time I thought, but these are really nice and I don't want to throw it away!! So I am very pleased that you have shown how to make the pads replaceable!! Lovely little gifts for stocking stuffers, shower favors, gifts to members of a Club, etc. Thanks as always Clare.

  8. Great idea, thanks. I'm going to make one to match a birthday card I just finished from the Graphic 45 "Time to Flourish" paper pads. Lynda
