This was the 3rd gift item thst I made for my partner in the Christmas Decoration swap.
I had this green checked paper in my stash and it just seemed to go so well with the yellow star paper that I decided to put the two together. A green post it note pad and the empty cardboard carton from a box of Whiskers meat pouches and 'bobs your uncle' a post it note holder was born!!
(Well seems logical to me!!!!)
The buttons and beads were from my stash and the flower/leaves were made from white paper using distress ink in Wild Honey and Forest Moss. Does not show up very well in the picture but the flower has glossy accents on the petals.
Show casing on
