It's Your Day

I have created an elegant desk top accessory for your enjoyment today. This is a great project to give to your friends for many occasions. These are made by purchasing a 4x6 acyclic frame and inserting a piece of designer paper.

Many times you can find these acyclic frames at a dollar store. The white note pad was made by a local printing shop. You could create this project using post-it notes but, many of them come in pastel colors and I didn't want to be limited to a specific color combination. It would be easy to convert these for men by changing out the colors and accessories.

Here's a close-up of the flower. How to make the flower: cut pattern paper in 4 x 4 inch piece, you will need three pieces. Start tearing the paper in a circle. Do this three times but, each time make the circle smaller. Layer the different sizes on top of each other and insert an antique brad. Adhere to the frame with a pop dot. To adhere the pad you will want to use red tape so the pad overtime won't fall off from the tugging.

Challenges I participated in: Allsorts - Inspired by nature, Little Claire's Anything Goes

Paper: SU and HL
Other: SU Sizzlists Little Leaves die, antique brad, SU butterfly punch, 4x6 acyclic frame, small pen, note pad
