Early Bird Make n Take

Welcome! Today is the day...oh yeah, the Scrap Shotz online crop, "Let's Play Games!" To get us into the scrapping mood, let's start out with an Early Bird make n take from Jen.

"You can't have a fabulous weekend of game playing without having a SCORE KEEPER or a Strategy Pad. In other words, my make & take project is a little post-it pad holder that you can use to make lists, plan your day, keep track of things... whatever you want.

Gather your supplies. You will need:

1 piece of cardboard / chipboard that is 5.5x7.5
1 4x6" post-it note pad
2 coordinating pieces of PP cut to 11.5x7.5"
2 eyelets
embellishments as desired
scoring blade
corner rounder (optional)

Score your two pieces of PP at 5.5" and 6" along the long side.
If desired, round the top right and bottom right corners of your chipboard.

Glue your cardboard to the right panel of the wrong side of your PP, so on the back inside cover. Round right side corners if desired.

Glue your other piece of PP down on top, forming a sandwich on the right side where your cardboard is. Be sure to match up your score lines. You may have a slight overhand at one end depending on the thickness of your PP. This will be the inside cover. Crease and fold at score lines and round corners if desired.

Glue post-it pad to right inside panel, off-setting it further down and to the left as shown.

With your cropadile, punch and set two eyelets centered over your post-it pad and tie a ribbon bow or knot.

Fashion two pen loops out of ribbon and glue dots and attach alongside your post-it pad.

Embellish front cover as desired!

Voila!! You now have your own unique score-keeper, list maker, life strategy tool! :wink: Thanks for giving it a try and be sure to post your versions in this thread by MN EST Monday night for a chance to win a prize."

Thanks Jen!

***If you are interested in winning an extra prize, say from this blog, leave me a comment and I'll do a random drawing on Monday, May 17, 2010 at midnight.
