Faux Leather Notepad Holder

I saw these beautiful faux leather covers for post it notes on gayle's blogspot and really wanted to have a crack at them.  I'd already seen the faux leather technique using the Cuttlebug Tiny Mosaic Texture folder and Gayle very kindly sent me the Studio cutting file so I could cut the shape out on my Cameo machine.

I used Faded Jean Distress Ink for my folder. The faux fastening is a finding I had in my stash and attached it with a glue gun.

I got the magnets from Hobbycraft but they're not that strong so I may have to invest in some of the Basic Grey ones that Gayle used on hers.

I think these would make a nice little inexpensive gift for someone to keep in their handbag or on their desk at work.  

If you fancy having a go yourself visit  gayle's blog for a link to some Youtube tutorials.

Thanks for dropping by
