Dragonfly Dreams Notepad Thank you Gift

I got so many comments on this cute to do list holder from the last Paper Pumpkin Blog hop that I thought I'd do a post on this with tips.

I like to use ALL the items in the Paper Pumpkin box and this time I even used the cardboard protector LOL :) Here's the link to the original post.

Ok and the directions...first this is what we are making - a complete gift package with envelope and card, I think I'd add in a gift card clipped to the back (that's just me!)

Take a 12x12 DSP and cut off 3 ¾ x 12 and then cut in half for 2 sheets 3 ¾ 6, round the corners. See the template – this is section 3.  

Cut a cardboard sheet (from designer paper back or the paper pumpkin card inserts).  Round the corners.  I used my envelope punchboard to round corners.  I was a bit nervous with using it on cardboard but I had lost the foam top on the knob and was going to replace it so I thought why not use it? And it worked fine.  I secured the envelope with a magnet and the dragonfly is just decoration

So make the list holder with these 3 items, add a big clip and matching ribbon.  Add the TO DO lists – I have a template for this to do list. Email me and I'll send it to you. 

Now cut the designer paper down to 8 ¼ x 8 ¼  (section 2) and make a big envelope.  However prior to adhering the envelope together, insert the to do list, as it’s wider at one end. I appreciate it looks a bit wonky but I think that’s ok :)

Now make the notecard.  The designer piece is 3 x 4 ½, section 1, the silver foil is 3 ¼ x 4 ¾. The set is All Things Thanks and I used silver embossing powder with Versamark.
With the leftover from section 1, wrap the jumbo clip, I used 1 5/8 x 2 1/8 and wrapped it.

I think this makes a cute thank you gift – if you wanted it to be more you could add a little gift card on the back of the list holder.

I hope you make one!  Happy crafting, MaryKate
