Make a decision already

In October I had decided what I was going to do for my November craft project. All I needed to make them was one item, the rest of the materials I already had. The stores I was in didn't have what I needed and I wasn't able to get to the stores that probably would have it.

Plan B. I found another project but with similar results in the materials department.

Then Monday, because I had the day off and haven't been playing in my craft room much, I decided to try something I saw on Pinterest.  The project came from The Southern Stamper. These were post it note clip boards. She used chip board coasters for hers but mine were made from a coke 12 pack that I cut up into 4" x 4" squares. I already had plenty of scrapbook paper and the binder clips. The only thing I had to buy were the post it notes (pack of 5 for $1 at Dollar Tree)

Excuse the picture. With it getting dark so early I have to rely on lamps for light. I tied a piece of jute twine around the post it notes to keep them held down and from getting all bent up before purchase. You'll notice that the binder clip has matching paper glued to it. The back of these is just plain brown paper glued on. Because I was able to make 8 of these just on Monday I decided that this will be my November project.  With 2 more weeks to go I should be able to make quite a few more.


Now my card for the day.

I once favorited tiny clip boards on Etsy. I like clip boards. The card is very pretty.

I love the clipboard and I love the card for the day. That should be our motto year around.

Have a fabulous day. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

That's very cute! I don't quite understand why post it notes need a binder clip since aren't they sticky? Clearly I'm missing something! Love the card for the day too!
