Tea Shoppe Notepad

Here is another one of my contest submissions from May. We were challenged to make two 3-Dimensional projects as part of the contest submission.  I decided to design a note pad cover for some cute little note pads that I picked up really cheap from a local craft store. 

To start, simply measure the note pad that you want to cover.  Measure and cut a piece of cardstock that is approximately 1/4 inch larger (all the way around) the note pad.  So for example, if your note pad is 4 x 3, then you will add 1/4 inch measurement (making it 4 1/4 x 3 1/4). If you want to cover the note pad in book style, as pictured, then simple double the size…cut a piece of cardstock 8 1/2 x 6 1/2…remember to add inches for the binding.  For this project I added 1/2 inch binding so I cut my cardstock at 8 1/2 x 7 (then I scored the 7 inch side 3 1/4 and 3 3/4 to get my binding for the book).

The inside of my note pad book contains a few little embellishments.  I used the scallop envelope die to add the cute little pockets on the left side of my book. Then I just embellished them with some cute clips and sentiments.  The stamp set I used was called Tea Shoppe and, unfortuntately, is no longer available…but you can use any sentiments on the inside of the book! 

Good thing I have a picture of this so I can recreate a few to give as gifts!
