Cute little note holder

A while back i bought some wooden plaques made from MDF to make some bedroom signs for my neices. I still have a couple lying around so i came up with a cute little note holder for in Lili's bedroom.  What do you think?...
 It was easy to do i just took me about half an hour
 The cute bird stickers are from accessorize

If you want to make one you will need..
  • a wooden plaque (or you could use really stiff card)
  • 3 wooden pegs
  • spray paint
  • a piece of scrapbook paper and a small piece of co-ordinating card
  • stickers
  • ribbon
  • a 2" punch
  • double sided tape
  1. spray paint your pegs and leave to dry
  2. Cover one side of your plaque with scrapbook paper
  3. Punch 3 circles out of your co-ordinating card
  4. cover your pegs on the 2 straight sides with ribbon using double sided tape.
  5. attach one punched circle to the front of each peg and add a sticker.
  6. attach the peg to the bottom of the board using glue or dounble sided tape
  7. repeat woth the other 2 pegs
  8. stick a piece of ribbon near the top of the board and add some stickers
  9. stick a hanging piece of ribbon in a hoop shape to the back and then cover the back of the board with scrapbook paper to hide the ribbon.
