Masculine Matchbook Scratch Pads

When my husband saw the matchbook scratch pads that I posted on my July 26th  blog post, he hinted that he wouldn't mind having some of them (probably to use for my honey-can-you-bring-home lists) to keep handy in his briefcase.  Of course I couldn't give him the girly-girl ones so I made these manly-man mini scratch pads from Studio 45 double sided card stock. These used only one 12x12 sheet and the labels came with the package of masculine card stock which made these super fast to construct.  I did stamp 'secret' messages on the labels of the bigger matchbooks and used real brads on two scratch pads and half round black acrylic beads (from Ben Franklin Crafts floral department) on the other two.  The staples were covered with the card stock scraps so nothing went to waste.  

My sweet and generous hubby gave me a Smart Phone for my anniversary (but I think I need one called the ''Dumb Phone' as that is more appropriate for someone with my lack of technical skills)......so I told him these matchbook notepads are my anniversary gift to him.....cheap yeah?  Just kidding honey.  Well, that's it for this post.....remember to craft something for someone you care about.
