Fabricate Friday – Oriental Note Holder

Hello and welcome.

In Wednesdays video I mentioned a little bit about my planner.  I thought if you really wanted to take a close look at how fun this planner is I would share this little video.  The thing about the planner is that you get to customize it.  As artistic and crafty people we really like this option.  I am really not sure what I will decide to get for 2017 but I promise to share with you when I do.  As mentioned in the past video I have a coupon code and if you click HERE you can get $10 off your very own (just be prepared to fill out a bit of info to get that coupon).  Here the quick video.

Today I have a really cool spin on the stamp set timeless textures in the way that I am making use of colours and the flourish to create a oriental looking embossed cover for the project.  Check it out.

    Love this idea! The red is really elegant. What size is the note paper inside and did you cut it or find it cut?

      Hi Debbie, I just stole the paper from the original box to be honest. It’s approximately 4 and ⅝ by 3 ⅜.

        Thanks! That gives me a place to start looking for paper. This is really a great idea for some stocking stuffers for Christmas.

        Hey, you’re welcome. I figure just make the box and size the paper to fit inside of it. The weight of the note paper is similar to copy or printer paper. It would be cool if it took ink well too…thinking monogrammed note paper now. 🙂

    Oh I love this! Got to have a go at making one. Great idea using the point of the itty bitty star punch for the easel notch – ingenious! Thanks to Debbie for asking about the size of the Note Paper, I wanted to know that! Thanks for another great project, I am off to create a mess in my craft room now (chores can wait – ha!) x
