Challenge time at Craft-dee bowz

Hi all
It is time for another challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ.  The theme for the challenge is as always "Anything goes with a handmade bow". I thought I would make something different than a card this month so here it is....A handy notepad holder. The pad can be easily adapted to fit any size notepad.
For the decoration on the front I used a sizzix bigz die for the birdcage. The tags were hand cut .The bird was made using a Stampin up punch .The beautiful  triple looped bow was made using  spotty satin ribbon from Meiflower crafts and my fantastic  Craft-Dee BowZ. bow maker... I love this must have piece of crafty kit ,it makes bow making a doddle every time.
