Gift for my Roommate at Conventions

I know it has been a month since Convention; however, I just realized that I never posted the little gift I made my roommate.  There are a couple of items that I used that have since been retired; however, this will give you the idea so to make your own.  It is fairly simple to make and makes a great gift!

Using the Top Note Die I cut out three images from chipboard, then covered the front with cardstock and Designer Series paper.  Using coordinating ribbon I ran it along the back adhering it with Sticky Strip to each piece.  I then covered the back with matching Designer Series Paper.

I decorated the top piece with a saying and some flowers made from the Boho Blossoms Punch.  I hid the seem between the papers with some more ribbon.  this belly band does not go around to the back.

The second piece I attached a calendar.  This calendar I actually printed from Word (a 12 month calendar) and then cut it up and connected it all with brads.

The final piece I attached a Post-It pad for writing notes.
