Gift Idea: Notepad Holder for 5 x 8 and 5 x 7 notepads!

I was inspired by Karen McNall for creating this holder or cover for a 5 x 8 inch notepad. Using cardstock, DSP (Designer Series Paper) and a punch to create these fun and quick holders for a notepad. Who wouldn't want to receive this cute notepad, pen, and holder?

The best part is you can replace the notepad in the holder once you have used up all the pages in your notepad. Just slip the notepad out and replace with a brand new notepad and you still have the cute decorated holder.
