Note Paper Holder


Today's project is a Note Paper Holder - a wonderful easel box that I made using a new tutorial I purchased from Kim Score at Paper Punch Addiction. Isn't it great? I love it and have made another for myself, as this one is a gift for a friend. You can see Kim's great punch characters and project tutorials available on her blog at

The lovely image is one of Maurie J Manning's stamps. I absolutely love anything she draws and the children's books she has illustrated are beautifully done! You can her creations on her blog at Mo's Digital Pencil Too! If you have never seen her work you are missing a huge wealth of wonderful!

Thanks for stopping by today! And thank you for all your lovely e-mails and comments! They mean so much to me - each and every one!

Storms today here in WI - we do need the rain. I love this time of year - the flowering trees are all starting to blossom out and they are so beautiful! Other trees are all getting their leaves and at this stage of Spring they look so frilly and lacey! Love it! :<) Gives me hope on my darkest days to look at this beauty! I can't wait for the lilac season - their perfume is heavenly! Wishing you everything good today!

Great job on this project - I was over visiting at Paper Punch and saw this, too. It always hard to finish a project and give it away because I always want one for myself, too....we think alike! Hugs, P

Hello Barbara,
What a great paper holder. If I change the image, it would make a great teacher gift.
