One Sheet Wonder Scratch Pad Holder

On one of my yahoo groups, Latenightstampers, someone posted a cute box that held cards and envelopes. Well, just looking at it, I got this idea! I love it when inspiration comes out of nowhere like that! My friend Kim has this really cool pad of paper on her desk and I have been wanting to recreate it so when I got inspired by this project, I just KNEW what I wanted to do!

I am REALLY pleased with this project. The paper is regular copy paper cut 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and the “top” is actually a lid that slides down on it to hold everything in. The whole project is made with 1 sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock so it’s super affordable to make. Can you see making this for a co-worker?

My stamp room is pink and black polka dot so that I why I choose these colors. The saying at the bottom is from a new stamp set that will be in the 2009/2010 catalog called On a Pedestal. I love this new set! I can’t wait to share it with my Clubs!!!

If you would like the template, just email me at and I would be happy to share it with you!
