Tea Party Note Pad Holder

For my most recent technique class, I wanted to make a door prize. I've had some chipboard coasters around for a long time and I decided to turn one into a fabulous door prize. The only supplies I needed for this project were the chipboard rectangular coaster (approximate size is 3x5 inches), a large binder clip, 3/16" corner rounder, sanding blocks, Tea Party Designer Series Paper, grosgrain ribbon, and sticky strip.

To create, I cut two pieces of designer series paper to size, rounded the corners with the corner rounder, and adhered to the chipboard using the sticky strip. I sanded the edges with a sanding block. Next, I cut a strip of designer series paper and used sticky strip to cover the binder clip. The binder clip was then used to clip a simple spiral notepad (leftover from goodie bags we made for our softball and t-ball teams) to the chipboard. As a final touch, I tied some grosgrain ribbon scraps to the binder clip and added a designer brad. Viola, a great little door prize.

These are very easy to make and can be done in a variety of shapes and sizes. You can also use standard post it notes instead of the spiral note pad.
God Bless and Happy Stamping!
