School Days . . . Continued

Hello QKR Fans! Today's project is a continuation of the School Days (back to school theme) Blog Hop. There is still time to participate in the Hop and be eligible for a prize. All the details can be found here. Take the opportunity to see all the wonderful projects created by the Design Team Members and have a chance to win some products for yourself!

My project today is an altered Post-It leatherette case that was at my local craft store for only $1.This is a nice, sturdy case that can be refilled and reused; a gift that will keep giving!
And here it is after I "altered" it. I covered it with a piece of Core'dinations paper, added some patterned paper, the QKR Stampede Mouse Teacher (#702) stamp (which was colored with my Prismacolor watercolor pencils and a blender pen and cut out), some buttons and alphabet beads that were strung onto gold wire. If you look at the previous photograph, you will see that the opened (inside) cover is "shiny". This is a clear vinyl pocket that had a 1-year calendar in it -- but the calendar was outdated. You could put a gift card in the pocket for the gift recipient.
With a few changes, this could also be a terrific gift for an office worker--a secretary, administrator--basically anyone who uses Post-It notes on the job! Thanks for stopping by and visiting the QKR Stampede blog. Be sure to participate in the Blog Hop to be eligible to win a terrific prize!!! Have a GREAT day!    ---Carol
