Mini stationary box holder

Good afternoon bloggers.

I truly hope you are all well. I want to thank you all from my heart for your best wishes for my health and also my birthday wishes.

I also have a question and any help would be truly appreciated. I have won two top three in challenges and I'm able to put their badges on my sidebar of my blog. Does anyone know on how I go about doing that please. Also if anyone views my blog pls comment or follow me and I will return the favour.

This is a different project and its a mini stationary holder for small notes, tags etc. I followed the tutorial here but tweaked it a bit and made my own mini notebook and changed the size of it. You can find the tutorial here : Notebook holder tutorial.  I love this site and its amazing how many different projects there are on this site. Have a browse you will be amazed.

Everything I followed via the tutorial apart from obviously the card, embellishments, size and my own handmade mini notebook. The notebook was easy to make. I measured the bottom of the stationary holder to make sure the notebook would fit and basically found some patterned notepaper , cut to size , stapled together and embellished the silver mirrored card notebook cover to the note paper. The holder has a pen holder, stamps holder, pockets for other stationary and a big pocket at the back for bigger notepaper . It can be given as a gift with a handmade card for a birthday or even just for yourself to use for your craft stuff. Easy and cheap to make. It also all folds up neatly into a box with a embellished lid for space saving. Well I've made this for my friends birthday and will be making a card to match it.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges please:

Sharon xxxx

Hi Sharon,
your stationery box is very lovely. Your friend will be sooooooo pleased with it.
Now to your winners badges. Have you got them on your desktop. If you have sign into your blog. Go to templates and where it says add a gadget click on this. Up will come a load of different things scroll down to add a picture from your blog, and then its very much like when you add your photo to your blog. See how you get on with that. You also need to put your followers back on your blog too.
I hope you can understand my instructions, not very good at explaining.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Morning Sharon, Glad you are feeling much better now. I love your Stationery Box, I love how you have embellished it and the colours are gorgeous. I will be popping over to the tutorial to see how you made it. Lovely idea for Church Fetes, think they would go down really well. Thanks for sharing with us all.
Glad that you managed, with Jenny's help, to pin your 'Honours' down the LHS of your Blog. Congratulations on your 'Top Three' Challenge Wins.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
