Digi Ink Challenge Dec/09

This week's challenge over at Digi Ink is to make a last minute gift. Since I'm not a last minute type of person, that's not an easy challenge. I like having things finished well before I need them. Why add to the stress of life by worrying... "I've got to make a gift, I've got to get this done" etc etc. Just do it and you don't have to think about it again. One less stress. But this little thing is quick and easy to whip up, is useful and a great little thank you gift for someone.
I've made a bunch of them in various colors and decorative papers I've had laying around (my marbled, or paste paper or just intriguing backgrounds). Only takes a piece of cardstock approx 2.25"w x 8.5" h. Rubber stamped with all kinds of positive quotes.

The inside is just plain copy paper, cut down to a small size, stacked and held in the matchbook with the two brads.

Yogi--I LOVE your philosophy! You go girl! I also love this matchbook--genius. I can see your recipients putting these in their purse to jot down notes. I love the marbled papers---very elegant. The positive quotes are my favorite, because everytime they grab it, they will read it, and have a positive affirmation. VERY thoughful, Yogi!
