He's checking it twice

Well I am checking my lists twice as I have put my name down for so many Craft Fayre's on the run up to Christmas it will be like Santa's crafty factory in my house for the next six weeks. It does seem at the moment that everyone is making note pads and not be outdone! I have made my own little version.

I made the wallet to fit a standard 7.5 x 21 cm ruled pad which you can get at most supermarkets etc. With an added bonus of some twill tape looped (see picture below) to put your pen in maybe. The only trouble is I need about 3 of these with all the organising I will need to do hee hee.

Have a great day & see you tomorrow xx

Supplies from Stampin' Up!
Card stock: Real red, old olive, whisper white and chocolate chip.
Ink: Black stazon.
Paper: Ski slop and dashing (both retired).
Misc: Medium twill tape.
Tools used: Piercing template and tool.
Other: PTI buttons and arctic snowflake punch.
