BIrthday gift in a box in a bag!

This is a birthday gift for a co-worker who also stamps! She is always making little lists, so I thought a little top note-book would get some use and then she wouldn't have to worry about the post it notes fallung off her classes case anymore... LOL!

The note book is made using the new Top Note Die from Stampin UP! I just moved the chipboard over so it wouldn't cut the curve on the binding side (or you could cut it off later). I adhered patterened paper to both sides of some cardboard I had lying around (think cereal boxes) and then ran it through the big shot - cut like butter!! Then I cut some copy paper down to size and rounded the corners to give it more of a finished look and punched everything with my Bind it All. Hint: Attach the ribbon AFTER you punch the holes with the BIA - ask me how I know!

Then inside I decorated a little bit and put in a little pocket on the front cover for her present (a gift card to SU). And, she can tuck her post it notes in here later :) Then it needed a pretty presentation, so I made a matching RSVP pen and bog in a box. I'll come back later and post a link with directions for the bag in a box. Gotta get to work right now (and give her her present) Thanks for stopping in!
