Thrifty Thursday

Today is Thrifty Thursday on My Creative Time Blog. The goal is to create a project using scraps/leftovers or a recycled item. 
I've had these stacks of post it notes on my desk for a long time now with the notion that "I will" make something with them!!  Well I finally did!!  I took scraps of papers from the Mom card I did last week, designed up an "easel fold" and created this cute little notepad.  I'm glad I waited to get my "mojo" going on this project as I'm pleased with the results!  I gave a few out to my friends at a luncheon and they loved them!  I think I'll do these as a "kit to go" to share my design.
