I had said in my previous post that I would show another use for these cute and crafty Pentel® RSVP pens. While they are still “stuffed” with a strip of DSP, I’ve added them to a Jr. Legal Notepad Folder. This is such a nice way to tote around a legal pad for taking notes. Who wouldn’t want to show off one of these?
Now, I can’t take credit for the folder design. I found a great tutorial on Melissa Stout’s blog, The Stamp Doc. You can find that tutorial here. Melissa gives fabulous directions and these are extremely easy to put together. The most difficult (and most fun) part about these is deciding how to decorate them. And you must not forget the inside too :)
Here are a few of the designs I had made for the vendor fair.
I made a few mini ones as well. I had found a package of mini gel pens in the discount bin for .50 cents and just had to try. I had to reconfigure the folder dimensions but that wasn’t difficult. These were super easy because there isn’t a lot of room for decorating. A simple punched Elegant Butterfly and some Jewel Basic Pearls and it’s done!
These would make lovely teachers gifts, hostess gifts, or just about anything you can think of. Occasions and themes can be easily changed simply by the DSP and images you use. Gotta love versatility! Thanks for stopping in today. I hope you’ve been inspired to make one (or more) of these for your next giving occasion. Of course, you don’t REALLY need an occasion to make someone’s day :)
