notepad easel cards

Hi!  This is the last set of teacher gifts I made for this school year. 

I'm not sure why in this photo the hair on the girls look different.  Must be the lighting.  Anyway, this is how it looks closed.  I bought these mini pens a while ago from Walmart.  I used Sister Stamps Yoshimi and Ayako.

This is how they look opened.  The memo pads are from Office Depot that I bought a long time ago on sale and I've only gotten around to making something with them now.  These open like easel cards but because the memo pad is so long (5 inches) I only could leave about an inch in the back of the pad (so I could use a 12 inch strip of paper) but it was still enough to stand nicely.

After I made all of these end of the school year stuff, I cleared off my desk and threw away lots of scrap paper that I had just piled up.  Now my desk is clean and I feel like I'm so ready for all the exciting things that are coming up this summer!

Hope you're enjoying this long weekend!  Thanks for reading!
