Freebie Shamrock Notepad holder....

 I wanted to try something different for St. Patty's Day.  It has always been a special day for me.  Of course the month of March is special.  My brother was born on the 2nd of March, my dad on the 17th (and he was Irish to boot), and I was born on the 16th.   My family celebrated our Irish heritage.   Poor Mom didn't have a chance....its not like they have a German heritage day.   Anyway just a few days ago we found out that the last name of Gay is Irish.....I married an Irishman and didn't even know it.   My dad is smiling down on us.   So this year we will celebrate with green tea, a green cake and corned beef and cabbage.  Hope it turns out good  :o)   

So to celebrate, I am giving you all the files to make this darling note pad holder.   I put a couple of magnets on the fact....I cut up an old magnetic business card and used it.  It is flat and worked out well.  I used a fabric glue to adhere it to the notepad .  It held real nice.   Now you can add a pice of ribbon on the side to hold a pen or pencil.  Place the ribbon on the front when you add the back to the notepad and trim with the felt and material. Just use a pin to hold the ribbon in place.  Place the head of the pin towards the center of the notepad so you can pull it out before the needle stitches it.  It will look real nice and you will have a pencil handy when you jot down those groceries you need or last minute instructions to the family.   I hope you enjoy this freebie and remember don't share.  It's free.  Tell your friends to come here and get it. Thanks!
