Inspired by a swap I received from Paula Reuben at convention, the ladies in my Clermont Stamp Club recently made a mini notebook with a pocket. I had several packs of mini note pads in my drawer from a previous project a long time ago. What a perfect time to use up some supplies!
The completed project measures 3-3/4" x 5-1/2". It's the perfect size for a purse or even in the glove compartment of the car. The inside even boasts a side pocket to store your notes!
The notepads measure 3-1/2" x 5-1/4". I've had these awhile, but I probably found them at Walmart. They came three to a pack and were very inexpensive.
To create the "shell" of the notebook holder, use the following dimensions:
8 x 8-1/2" piece of card stock.
Score along the 8" edge at 2.5".
Score along the 8-1/2" edge at: 3-1/2", 3-3/4", 7-1/2" and 7-3/4"
Once you have scored, you will cut away the small rectangle created by the score lines where the pocket and the flap meet. This is simply to remove bulk and to create a clean pocket. Decorate the front as desired.
For the front of my notebook, I used a stamp in the From My Heart stamp set (#126557 C, #126555 W). This is one of a few stamp sets that are available in multiple languages. Besided English, it is also available in Spanish, French and German. This 8 piece set not only has great sentiments but some really intricate designs too. In addition, this set also coordinates with the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack (# 126187) and the Labels Collection Framelit Dies (#125598)
Do you like this set as much as I do? You can order it here in my online store.
Have a GREAT Monday.
