Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Last Minute Gifts

This is our last Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge of 2009...and this time Mandy has challenged us to make :

'Last Minute Gifts'

I've made quite a few of my Christmas presents again this year...but these little post-it note covers, were by far the quickest and easiest things to make:


I cut pieces of card measuring 3 1/4 x 7 inches, then scored them 3 1/4 inches from each of the short ends, and folded along the score lines. I glued the post-it note pad to the inside, and decorated the fronts with a mixture of My Mind's Eye and Daisy D's papers, buttons & flowers from Poppicrafts, card candy and lettering cut using my Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet.
Here's a view of the inside:


I'm sure you're all busy making those final preparations for Christmas...and I'm sure that you'll find some inspiration for those 'last minute gifts' from the design team over on the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge blog.
