I had the pleasure of meeting up with Louise, our DT leader and our mutual friend Carol. We had a wonderful day out together and I decided to make them each a little gift:
So what are these you may wonder, and you will see that in a minute, but first I thought I'd show you which lovely Craft Parts I used:
Both of these are ATC wood blanks, which look like this when you first get them (there are many more styles, check them out)!
For my project today I decided to use them as toppers for the two little folders I made that can hold sticky notes.
I started by making the folders with the help of tags, inks and stamps:
The tag I used is about 8.5" long and I scored it at 4" and 4.5" to make a kind of book shape when folded. This was the first one I did.
This is the ATC blank, I love the postage stamp style of it and altered it with crackle paste, stamps and inks until it looked like this.
And here is the finished front of the folder. I also used one of the gorgeous Corner Wood Shapes and one of the little hearts to cover the hole in the tag.
Here is the inside with the sticky note pad stuck down. Such a shame they don't do these in more muted colours...
The word Fly was stamped on another one of the little wood shapes: The Notched Rectangle. These are great for titles etc.
As I like the shape of the ATC blank so much I did not use the frame for the front, but instead used part of it to decorate the right side of my folder.
The second one was done in a very similar way, just in a different style.
The out - and inside of the folder above and below the ATC blank adhered to the front. The photo is one of my hubby's relatives:
On this one I covered the hole on the tag with one of the Flourish Wood-shapes, again there are lots of different ones to choose from.
Here finally is the inside, decorated still with a couple of the Wooden Cogs Shapes.
Well, that's it for now and I will leave you with a photo taken during our lovely day out:

Thanks for visiting like always and have a creative week!!!
