30 Days of Handmade Gift Giving Blog Hop ~ Day 3

Hello and welcome to my blog I love having visitors it makes me so happy to see you all here again.  I have to say I was so happy and excited when I got a message from Jill aka Scrapoholic asking me if I would like to be part of her 30 Days of Handmade Gift Giving Blog Hop, I also was a part of this last year and myself I just loved it cause I too got so many ideas for making gifts, it comes in very handy making your own gifts, and myself I would rather have something made then going to a store and buying it, it means so much more when that person knows you took the time and effort to make it special for them.  So for this year I have been so wanting to make these Note Pads with Post it, I had seen this on several blogs and I am doing my first Craft Fair this weekend, this will be one of my items I will be selling, so I hope you all will like it, please if you would, tell me what you think of my Gift Making Item before leaving my blog today. I am very happy with the way it turn out being it's my first one.

Pen & Note Pad

for making this you will need:
Supplies Needed

Cut Paper 4x6
then slide paper in the 4x6 frame

it will look like this

then add ribbon @ top

then add your Post It Pad
I used my ATG gun for making it extra sticky
then cut a thin strip of matching paper
take pen out wrap paper around pen
matching the paper in frame
these pens can be found @ Staples
brand is Pentel RSVP type

see the paper inside of pen

then dress it up
adding a flower or two

I added a stamp and some bling too

and there you have it
a pretty Gift Hand Made!!

thanks again for visiting me today and
again thanks to Jill, you can visit Jill's blog @
to get all the 30 Days of Handmade Gift Making.
Hugs my friends
