Simple Address Book

My mom wanted me to make her an address book for Christmas. I thought about one for her purse, but she tends to lose things in there ;) For her the best one that I could come up with is something to hang on the wall, this way it won't get lost anywhere.

Papers are from my 8x8 paper pad from fortheluvofart.com , Chipboard designed by me for Magistical Memories covered in Tim Holtz crackle paint,The Robins Nest- Dew Drops- Turquise bling, Mist is Silver Foil Smooch from Clear Snap, Tiny Type Alpha- Jenni Bowlin, Thickers Alpha for "addresses", Jute rope is from Canvas Corp., Helmar Tape Runner and Zapdots.  I believe I got this in a holiday pack from Michaels a couple years ago.

Welcome Helmar Holiday Hoppers!

Welcome! I hope you're having a great time hoping around and are full of ideas for the Holidays! I got my idea from a class that the girls of IOD did for their mops class! They found the instructions on this great site called Howdoesshe.com
Here's a list of supplies that you'll need to complete this project:

Downloadable Box Template (You can also use wooden cubes if you have them) Under "Google Docs" Click on File to Download original or to print.
Helmar Tape Runner
Helmar Liquid ScrapDots
Creative Imaginations- Night Divine Collection by IOD

~ Download the box template and cut out. If you have blocks you'll need to cut squares to put them on your blocks. If you're using wood I recommend Helmars 450 Adhesive or the V2 Spray.
~ After you have cut out your box template, choose four of the Night Diving papers and trace the template onto the paper. Cut out and fold where the lines and tabs are.
~ Use your Helmar tape runner to apply adhesive onto the tabs.
~ Fold squares upwards towards the tabs and press to adhere. I found it easier to put three sides together then to put the top on before adhering my last box side. Press all sides together to make sure your boxes are all together
~ Decide which two boxes your going to use for the numbers and ink the sides and set those aside.
~ Ink the next two blocks and set those aside
~ Grab your number boxes when they're dry and add numbers accordingly: *Block 1 - 0,1,2,3,4,5 and *Block 2 - 0,1,2,6,7,8 (Please make sure your number 6 is a font that can be flipped to look like a 9)
~ On the bottom two blocks *Block 1 add "Days To" and *Block 2 Either put Christmas or a cute Christmas square tag.
~ Put the four blocks together and use a long piece of ribbon to hold them into the shape of a square.

With the extra's create a cute and simple card if you're going to give this as a gift!

If you decide to do this project, please share it on the Helmar Facebook page! We would love to see it! Also, a little elf told me we're doing some giveaways on our page as well ;)
