Note Pads...

Fall is definetly here....This notepad I did for the Stamping Bella Challenge. They just wanted you to do a Halloween theme, so instead of doing a card I thought this would be handy! I love making lots of these at Christmas. They are great hostess gifts, teachers and even for yourself to keep track of your things to do during the busy holiday season!


Stamp: Stamping Bella
Paper: Papertrey cardstock
* I have been asked how I made this little note pad. I went to the dollar store and bought some inexpensive note pads and then went to a printing company to have them cut them in half. So these note pads measured 3" wide and 9" long. Then I took kraft cardstock from Papertrey which is extra strong ( you can use any strong cardstock for the cover) and cut it to measure, 6 1/2" wide and 9" long. You then score it were it will go around your pad at 3" and 3 1/2". You then cut a strip of paper for the top to wrap at the top to hold it together and then glue only that strip to the cardstock. Believe it or not it will hold. Then just decorate any way you fancy! Hope this is clear enough to follow!
