This is a small gift I have made for a very good friend who is leaving school to complete his teacher training (fingers crossed he will be back next year!). His name isn't really Giz, that's just what everyone calls him!
I bought these cases last year and they have been sitting in my craft room ever since so I thought I would have a go at making a 'notes box'. I have to say it has taken me ages to make as I just didn't know how to decorate it but, as I had to have it ready by today, I decided to get a move on with it on Sunday.
I have used Midnight Muse DSP and cardstock to decorate the case and cover the notepads and the 'brainstorming' cover was made by using computer generated words punched with the Cupcake Builder Punch. I put a little magnetic board inside (bottom right) by running a piece of a drinks can through the Square Lattice Embossing Folder which was then glued to a larger piece of cardstock. The magnets were made by cutting some thick chipboard with the Circles Die, covered with DSP and a magnet glued on the back. A few Glimmer Paper stars were added to finish. I can't honestly say I'm thrilled with the result but, as they say, it's the thought that counts and I'm sure he'll appreciate it anyway - well I hope so :0)
