A little altered art project

The project that I want to share with you is a prezzie that I have made for my son...... He hopes to be moving to his new place over the summer and I know how much easier it is to do your shopping with a list....
So, this is what I made for him....

This project started life as one of the large Do Crafts pegs, the paper I used to decorate it was the front cover from my Heritage Press paper pack.
 And I loved the idea of the message peg so much that I just had to make him a matching notebook.... I might go back and decorate the pen too!
 Here is a close up of the peg.....
 And this is how they go together.....

I thought this would make a great stocking filler...... and an ideal little gift for the man in your life.... (or woman for that matter).... fit perfectly onto a desk too........ and looks really good with photos in it.

What creative things have you got planned for the weekend?
Happy crafting, whatever you do.....
