My Sister and I had a Game Night Friday night. She sales Simply Fun which fun family games. We thought it would be fun to use the new game night stamps and have a combo party. If you would be interested in more information about her games you can check out her website at www.brigetudy.simplyfun.com.
I wanted to create a fun project that would go along with the theme. I found this folder created by Wendy Knowles in our awesome group. I decided to give it a try. Her project was all covered with the DSP, but I didn’t have enough so I decided to try it with paper that I stamped on. She covered a file folder.
I found that this was a little more difficult with the solid paper verses the DSP and it was hard to fold and not have it bubble. I still think that it turned out cute, but was more time consuming than I wanted for the party so I decided I needed to simplify.
This is the project I came up with. It is really quite fast and easy. It’s just one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 paper folded around the note pad. Then I added the DSP and some stamped paper. I still added the cute black strip in the front like she had. I used a crimped paper inbetween to give it a little more texture. I decided I didn’t want to tie the bow everytime we used it so I put the stampin’ demimentionals on the bottom part of the black tag only so I could slide the ribbon off the top.
Inside Wendy had attached the notebook with sticky strip but I wanted to be able to replace it with out tearing my book so I decided to put a strip of DSP all the way across. I only glued it down on one side. Where the note book is I placed it in-between the card board back and the last sheet of paper. Then I put sticky strip on each side of it. This way I cold slip the note book out and put a new one in.
We love to play games with my family and I really loved having a way to keep score. There is a little ribbon loop on the front that you can keep a pencil in. This way we can keep this with all the games and then when we want to play we don’t have to find a notebook a paper. Sometimes it’s also fun to see who won last time so it’s nice to have it all in one place.
