Eyelets, Ribbon, Paper - OH MY! Blog Group's First Challenge

Jenn (Jax Bean Stalks) is hosting our Blog Group's (Eyelets, Ribbon, Paper - OH MY!) first challenge.  The challenge - re-purpose a cereal, cookie, or cracker box.  I turned this cereal box into a notepad and pen holder.  
This is the outside.  
This is the inside.
This is a close-up of the image.  I covered the box with a piece of material I had left over from a previous project.  The image is also left over from another project.  I used Mod Podge to adhere the material to the box.  As happy as I am with the way this project turned out, I'm still in awe over the projects my blog-mates have created.  You should visit their blogs and see the wonderful things they have made.  A few examples are Lone Pine Designs' - Scrap paper holder and Confessions of a Left-Brained Stamper's ribbon holder (and she made a cute pencil/pen holder from toilet tissue tubes).  Thanks for looking!
Stamps:  Shirley's 2 Girls - "Note of Thanks"
Ink: Stazon
Paper: Bazzill Cardstock
Misc: material, Bazzill Big Blossom, Doodlebug flocked brad, Sharpie markers, RSVP pen, notepad
