*Honey Do* Book

We all have LOTS of fix-it things for our husbands to do, right? I know I do. "Honey do this, honey do that....." Well, here's a place to write it all down. {smile}

I found these notebooks (with the pen!) at Michael's in the dollar aisle...that's right, it only cost a dollar! They had a bunch of colors to pick from too. I knew I wanted to use some of the papers and ribbon from my Father's Day Key Ingredients so I picked up an orangey-red colored book.

Here's what the notebook looked like when I bought it. I turned it to accommodate the toolbelt image from the Boys Will Be Boys set. The pages on the inside of the book are completely blank without any lines, so it totally worked out to turn it on its side.

It was super easy (and fast) to make. I just cut a piece of the plaid DP to 4-3/8" x 2-7/8" as the "base" and then decorated it like a card. The white deckled rectangle is up on 1/16" foam tape and so is the sentiment on the double-ended tag. Taylor has both of these Spellbinders products in her store!

I made the "Honey Do Book" sentiment with my JustRite Lowercase Times New Roman Font, another product in the Taylored Expressions store! I love one-stop shopping!
