Mystery stuff challenge

My friend Terri M has a craft yahoo group. She sent the members some miscellaneous embellishments out with the instructions that we're supposed to make something from it. I got my envelope of embellishments today and in it was a chipboard circle with a Y on it, 2 burgundy silk flowers, some eyelash fiber, some white fiber, and some flowery trim. Quite a challenge since my usual comfort zone is pastels or brights. So anyway earlier today my friend Colleen sent me a link to this blog where I found the cutest post it notepad holder. I decided I would case that for my project (case means copy and steal exactly or something like that. I didn't do it exactly the same...but close). So this is what I came up with.

The diamond and french script paper is from Scenic Route. The pink is from Pebbles in my Pocket. The pen loops are made with Baroque Burgundy cardstock from Stampin Up (it's retired). The same cardstock lines the inside of the covers but I forgot to take a picture of that. The pen is an RSVP pen and I put pink paper in it (RSVP pens are neat-you can put a strip of paper inside the barrel to decorate them). I put a big fat button on the flower with some pink fibers from Bazzill threaded through the holes. The eyelash fiber is behind the flower and the flowery trim is on the front. I love that trim-I'll have to find out where Terri got it. The chipboard circle was cut to sort of a label shape and covered with the pink paper. I inked the edges with baroque burgundy ink. I stamped NOTES on it with baroque burgundy ink using Ma Vinci Harting Small letter stamps, then I punched holes and put some Bazzill brads in them. Inside is a post it pad about 4x6. The original project used a 3x5 post it pad so I had to fix the dimensions a little. I made the spine too narrow (forgot to compensate for the thickness of mat board vs chipboard) so I had to take a few pages off the post it pad. Something to remember for next time I guess. I thought it turned out kinda cute. Thanks Terri, for the fun challenge!
