Build a Blossom Memo Pad

My granddaughters are attending Vacation Bible School and each one has a team leader.  I wanted to make each team leader a small gift to let them know they were appreciated.  I hope they like this memo pad.

Here are my girls enjoying their second day of "Panda Mania"
Build a Blossom punch (#121808)
I used the Build a Blossom punch and stamp set by Stampin' Up to make the flower.  You can refer to my post dated March 14, 2011, for full instructions on how to make it.
To form the base of the card cut a piece of card stock (CS) to 10" x 4 1/8" and then score it at 4-5/8", 4-15/16" and 5-1/8" along the 10" side.  Fold on the middle score mark and cut the flap up to the next score line 1-1/4" from each side.

Fold all score lines, then push middle sections outward and two outer sections inward to form the loop for a pencil.  Glue outer sections to secure.

Glue a note pad inside with sticky tape and slide a small pencil into the loop on top.

Used the verse, "Friends are flowers that never fade" from the stamp set Friends Never Fade by Stampin' Up.  Stamped it on white CS in black ink and then punched it out with the scalloped oval punch.

Finally, glued the blossom flower with a glue dot to the front of the card.  I plan to make six different memo pad cards by Friday, so I better hurry.

One last picture of Angie with her two team leaders.  Angie can't wait until she's old enough to be a team leader herself.

Hope you can use this quick gift idea.  Enjoy your day and come back again and visit.

Oh, I bet they loved these. The flower is so pretty. I had no idea that the punch was so pretty and made such big flowers.
