A little present for a friend...

One of my favorite things to do when I get home from church
on Wednesday nights is to tune in on the House of 3 Webshow.
Last week Heidi Swapp was showing
how to make cute altered notepads. 
So, with my friend's birthday coming up...I thought that this
would be a fun little gift for her.  You know, for that friend
that has everything already...
I used a 12"x12" sheet of paper and cut it 8 1/2"x12".
I decided to have it open in the middle.
So, to help it stay shut I had to add the ribbon to it.
The middle bow is only attached on one side of the flap.
This notepad is a 5"x8" size, I bought a pack of 6 for cheap at my
local discount store.
I cut two slits, one at the top and then one towards the bottom
to feed the back of the pad through.
Have a Delightful day!
