Note pad and pen holder magnet

I just love coming up with new ways to use my die cuts...This is my new 4 inch circle cut from chipboard and covered with patterned paper...but the best part is....
using the photo holder die cut as a pen holder...Oh my gosh...I had this on the back burner and just never took the time to put something together...Well, while doing all this cleaning and playing...I decided to make one...
All of the photo holder shapes will work...I just happened to choose this one...I trimmed the scallop off one end...so it would lay flat when I lined up the holes...
Curl the photo holder into a circle, lining up the holes...and thats how you attach it to the base piece...How easy is that...
I added the small sticky notes pad to this one...stamped the notes word image from Innovative Stamp Creations, sponged the edges and added the pen holder using a mini brad...I tried various types of pens and markers and found it worked to hold every one I tried...I put a piece of magnet strip on the back and voila...You can use it on the fridge, filing cabinet...or in my case my metal door in my studio...thats where this one will be... debbiesdiecuts@yahoo.com

Debbie;
I think it is brilliant! I once made eraser boards for a mom's day project and used the little suction cup Christmas light holders for them. It worked okay, but this idea of yours is far better!
