So whatever happened to that Shopping List?

Why am I showing a picture of an old project? First off, I apparently didn't take any individual pictures of the shopping list, lol! And I have to give you a little update on this project. I hung the shopping list on my fridge shortly after making these projects in July last year. We ran out of paper on it about a month ago and my boys keep reminding me that we need more paper in it! They use it all the time to write stuff that we have run out of or just need. And it still looks just as good as the day I hung it up there (except my little butterfly fell off :(  ) Well, I still had a little stack of the paper left, so I popped the staples out of the finished project, used my perforating tool from the Cutter Kit to make them tear-out-able like I did before, stapled the new stack together, and used Sticky Strip to attach them back into the project. I had stapled the first pad in, but there is a magnetic strip there now and I just don't think the stapler would go through that.  

Here is what I wrote in the Blog Hop post for this project:

In keeping with the whole Earth-friendly theme here, I made the notepad out of all those pages leftover in a notebook at the end of the school year and cut them down to 3-1/2" x 10-1/2". I then perforated the top with the cutter kit and stapled them together. I stamped the leaf image all over the Tangerine Tango paper. I even added ribbon loops on the bottom to hold a pen or pencil! The little butterfly is sponged with Shimmer paint for a little extra shimmer, and there are rhinestones in the centers of the flowers. Don't forget, you can click on the picture to enlarge it!

Still a great notepad and such a good idea to use the perforating tool from the cutter kit. You are SO smart! TFS
