Vintage Vogue Note Holder

This was a project I demonstrated at a party a few months ago.  It's a little box that holds notepaper.  Really quick and easy to make and great little gift for someone who likes pretty stationary (like me).  And no, I didn't stamp every piece of paper in the box - just the top one!  I bought the little pack of loose leaf notes from the Reject Shop - love that place although it sounds really scungy - it's got a lot of good stuff - really, it has.  My colour scheme was Melon Mambo and Old Olive which I teamed up with the Vintage Vogue stamp set.  I made the box to fit the paper perfectly and before I assembled it, I stamped randomly on the cardstock with the vine/leaves stamp. The large flower was stamped off once onto scrap paper to make a lighter shade of pink and then I simply tied Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon around the middle to finish it off.  The hostess loved it, hope you do too.
