School Days . . . Continued

QKR Stampede is having a School Days (back to school) Blog Hop and is offering a fabulous shopping spree prize to one lucky Hop participant. If you haven't visited the Hop, please go HERE to find out all the details  about the Hop and the prize. One important thing to keep in mind to be eligible is that you not only must visit the blogs of each Design Team Member, but you must also leave a comment so that we know you were here!

Today's project is something that could be a really neat teacher's gift. While I was coming up with ideas for my School Days Blog Hop projects, I came across this little leatherette Post-It holder at my local craft store for $1 (one of the bargain baskets!!).

I thought this would be a terrific altered gift idea. And what's great about it is that it is refillable/reusable, so there's really no waste! First, I cut and scored paper to cover the case, then I just started decorating and embellishing. The stamp that I used for this is the Mouse Teacher (#701) from QKR Stampede, which was colored using my Prismacolor watercolor pencils and a blender pen. I also added some buttons and strung some alphabet beads onto a thin gold wire.

This little item would be great not only as a teacher's gift, but could be adapted as a gift for anyone in an office -- secretaries, administrators, etc.,--anyone who uses Post-Its!! As always, thanks for stopping by, visiting, and commenting. Have a GREAT day!!

Carol, I just saw this on the QKR blog and had to come and comment here. It is so darn cute. What a wonderful idea.
I was at one of the stores today and they had their $1.00 items at 40% off and then they had a coupon for 25% off everything regular and sales prices. I got some great things for altering for Christmas gifts. Can't wait to get started.
