I really like how it turned out. I used Smokey Shadow cardstock which I've had for awhile, just never pulled out (why?!?). The ribbon is a super fun technique that Lisa Johnson has posted about. I actually did both the top and bottom of the ribbon (I think she usually only does one side). So easy and fun!
I also had to add a fun pencil in there. I secured it in place with some True Black saddle stitch ribbon that I used on the outside. The pencil was covered in the same dp as on the front of the notepad cover.
I really do like how this turned out. It was super simple and was quick to put together and did it's job of pleasing my mom!
