My Mesa Car Gift

Happy Thursday My Blogger Friends!
Today I will be sharing the two Mesa car gifts that I made for myself........and sharing some details about those gifts.

Here are the water bottle holder and notepad holder that I made for myself.  Of course......both of my items were made in my favorite color PINK! 
 The water bottle holder was created with a thin die I recently bought from Paper Smooches. 
I decorated the front panel of my water bottle holder with some Stampin' UP! Designer Series Paper Pattern Stack in the Brights Collection.  I grabbed a clear stamp set in my stash to stamp my "K" initial and then punched out each layer with some SU punches.  Adding a small piece of White Seam Binding across the bottom of my DSP was the final touch I added to my water bottle holder.
My notepad holder was created with a junior legal pad that I purchased from the office supply store.....and I had them cut the junior pads down to 2" wide.
Each notepad was 5" x 8-1/2" and I scored each holder at 2-1/4" and 2-1/4".  That gave me the fold lines I needed for my notepad holder to open up like a book.  I also added a small piece of DSP to the to of my notepad (to cover up the binding of my notepad).....And that piece measured 2" x 2" and I just wrapped it around the top of my notepad and adhered it down with some liquid glue.
 I decorated the top panel of my notepad with a Melon Mambo scallop circle and then added a 1-1/4" White circle an added a "Remember This" message that I stamped out from my stash and fussy cut it out and popped it onto my 1-1/4" white circle.
 
I had a blast creating all four of these Mesa Car Gifts.......and the ladies just loved what I made for them.
 
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share with you the fun little Dum Dum floral arrangement I made for my studio.  Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!
