~ Part 2 – Early Start on Christmas Gifts

I realized last week that the pretty girly Post-It Note holders I made a few posts down probably won’t go over very well with the men in my office.  I work in a pretty sizable directorate–about 20 of us when we’re all there and without added interns running around.  Here is my solution to the girly note holders, a somewhat more manly black-white-cranberry themed clipboard-like note holder, complete with color-coordinated binder clips.

The chipboard I used are actually Bind-it-All covers.  I re-purposed them to serve as the backs of make-shift “clipboards”.  The awesome binder clips are available in bulk at Staples.  You can pick and choose different styles of clips and fill a container ($5.99 for the small or $9.99 for the large).

Stuff:  chipboard – Bind-it-All; patterned paper – Foof-a-La; cardstock and ribbon – Stampin’ Up!; binder clips – Staples

  3. Lea, I love this idea. So creative. I used to make handmade gifts for my co-workers, but being a SAHM, hummm, I don’t have co-workers to make gifts for. Maybe I could do a few for my hubby’s!!!

    Thanks for sharing your ideas! I love to see your creative projects.
