Now, as I said I do have a lot of wishes, but my main wish is to find a job. It's been a bit crazy here being unemployed and not being able to contribute to the household as much. I'm not going to whine anymore about this because I do know there is something "Fabulous" waiting for me, but ... Nope, done ... Which brings me to my project. Now, not having a lot of money right now I've been forced to use up what I have. Scraps, ribbons, odds and ends...you know, the stuff you have lying around and never use because you don't have to...well, right now I do have to and this got me to thinking. I wanted to give each of the ladies something for joining me on this special day and it had to be inexpensive since there are 13 of them celebrating with me...A few years ago I was doing a lot of craft fairs and I would spend all winter making stuff to get ready to sell in the spring. I would search all the dollar stores for inexpensive items to add to my "crafting" and started to accumulate a lot of stuff. The one thing I went way overboard on were these office clips.
and having worked at the casino, I accumulated
a lot of these types of coasters (unused of course)
and scrapbooking and card making
I have A LOT of these
So put that all together and you get this
and here are the fronts:
Now I layed them out randomly and I had each of
the ladies in the hop enter their name randomly in
a document on facebook and their number will coincide
with each Post It note holder and that is how I chose
which one to send them...because there was just no
way for me to figure out who got what...I hope
they like the choices they made...hehehehe
Now I also wrote them each a personal note
thanking them for attending my Birthday Hop and I
hope you left them all a bit of bloggy love. They
did a fantastic job!!!
I adhered my pattern paper to the front of the coaster,
plain paper to the backside. Then I added a piece of
paper to the office clip and clipped the post it note
to the coaster and added a ribbon...DONE!!!
Just think how quickly you can deplete some
of your scraps and odds and ends.
Now I will be giving away a set of 4 of each coasters (unused), office clips and post it notes for you to embellish your own post it note holders. Now the only way you can win, is if you left bloggy love and became followers of ALL of the ladies. I will be picking a winner and checking with them to make sure you left a comment on their blog...
