A Memo Block Holder

Good Morning

Today I would like to share with you a memo block holder I amde during a workshop with the wonderfully talented Gwen at  The Stamp Pad in Saddleworth.

I was really looking forward to the workshop, even though I didn't know what we would be making and what it would entail !

We started off with 1mm Greyboard, and some Graphic 45 Kraft Reflections card and some tacky glue.

Then we ended up with this :-

To make this we measured the size of the memo block and then added a few mm's each way to ensure the block would fit. We then cut the greyboard to this size. We then cut four sides 3cm deep and the same width  as the size of the block plus 1mm (for the width of the board). We then covered the pieces, with the exception of the inside of the sides, and then glued together. We then stuck the inside pieces in and then cut the piece of greyboard for the back. For this we used the Tim Holtz Movers and shapers die. We then used the same die to cut 2 covers from the same Kraft clock paper. The we glued it all together.

This is such a great idea and could be made to look so different by using different coloured papers.

Thanks for stopping by. 
I appreciate all comments you may have on my creations.
