New Little Claire Challenge - Make a Gift

It's time for the last Little Claire challenge of the year and this month our theme is 'make a gift'.  For my project, I chose to make a desk-top calendar and note pad.  You can see the outside of it in the photo above and the inside below:

I made the base from a piece of card and then added a calendar pad and covered note pad - I used X-Cut dies to make the words 'notes'.  On the opposite side I created a pocket for receipts, appointment cards etc.

For the front cover and the outside of the pocket I used 'Butterfly Blossom' from Little Claire which you can find here on their website.

You can find all the details about the challenge plus the projects from the rest of the Design Team here on the challenge blog and this is the great prize on offer for the challenge winner:
