Masculine Notepad Holder
In honor of Father's Day and to enter the H2H challenge (www.heart2heartchallenges.blogspot.com), I created a masculine post-it note holder. The challenge was to use recycled materials and scraps. I love this because I don't throw anything away if I think I can use it to craft. These post-it note holders are perfect to use up bits of paper and embellies. I started with a $1 acrylic frame. The paper was from the Felicity collection from Close To My Heart and literally came from my scrap drawer. The stars are rusty metal stars from an old 4th of July decoration that I took apart last year- I thought about painting them but I really like the rusty, rustic look as is.. The CTMH Waxy Flax is the only thing I used to embellish that was new from the package. I have had the metal "forever" tag forever!-it was leftover from a whole set of them-it was the last! I stamped the top note with a stamp from the CTMH "Shining Star" set in Chocolate ink.
