Vintage Notepad Holder

Hello crafting folks!!

Today I am sharing with you guys a chic vintage notepad holder. And guess what....I have used a paper carry bag for this one. This is a great giveaway for any occasion, however, this one I am going to keep for myself :)

I love using tea and coffee stained paper and have used the same for this project also. I stuck coffee stained cardstock (CS) on the front and back of the paper bag to make it sturdier. I distressed the edges using walnut stain distress ink.

I have embossed the CS to make two pockets for the inside. The ribbon used for the closure has also been distressed. I have distressed two doilies for the front cover placement. I have layered the vintage lady picture on a green polka dot pattern paper and distressed the edges. The picture has been framed by using tiny flat back pearls.

I have used the 'love life' tag and stamped another sentiment on the top maroon tag. I have used golden net to tie a string to the tag. I have also used a fussy cut yellow flower with leaves around the picture.

This is all for this post. I had a lot of fun making this and looking forward to see some of you vintage work.  Do leave a link to your work and share your feedback on this notepad holder.........

Hugs and blessings!!
