WT278 - Yellow Sunshine

 
This week's Ways to Use It Challenge on SCS is Yellow Sunshine.  Yellow is a color I don't use often.  I'm not sure why...could be because I'm one of those people who just can't wear it at all.  It makes me look a bit green.  
 
At any rate, I have a few scraps left of this Bo Bunny paper that I got a couple of years ago so thought I'd put them to work for this little notepad.  
 
The cover is 8.25" x 5.25".  I moved my CS to the 1" line, then scored at 3 1/2" and 3 5/8".  To make the ribbon treatment, I folded tiny bits of the ribbon over onto itself  then secured each fold with a tiny piece of Scor -Tape until it was the size I wanted.  The entire ribbon piece is then secured with a length of Scor-Tape.  Some straight and zig-zag stitching and a little butterfly and done!  I think a beaded pen might turn this into a sweet little gift.  What do you think?

Yellow Sunshine Saturday to you!  

Supplies:
Stamps - Papertrey Ink
Paper - SU Brocade Blue, Summer Sunrise, Bo Bunny
Ink - Versafine Jumbo Java
Accessories - sewing machine, MS butterfly punch, ribbon, Spellbinders Circle dies, Stickles, glitter pen, notepad
 
Pin It!

Super cute and definitely a wonderful gift! Love that fun ribbon treatment, too.

I can never wear yellow, either, unless I'm going for the jaundice look. ;)
