If I get 5 comments on this post, I will start a weekly Throwback Thursday project. What do you say? Can I get a whoop whoop?? Hehehe… Here’s a project that I created, so I don’t have a problem sharing the dimensions with you. You may have seen this project elsewhere but there is a difference. Mine is refillable. You can take the notepad out and put a new one in! Yay!
Want to learn how to make it? Ok. Here is what you will need:
1 – 8 1/2 x 11 in cardstock in your favorite color (Pacific Point used here)
1 – 3 x 5 in cardstock (basic black used here)
1 – 2 3/4 x 4 3/4 in cardstock in Very Vanilla or Whisper White (used here)
Embellishments of your choice – I prefer to use only ribbon as the idea is for it to go into your purse.
1 – 3 x 5 scratch pad (office supply store)
On your 8 1/2 x 11 card stock, put the 11″ side across the top of your favorite scoring tool. Score at 5 1/4, 5 1/2, 5 3/4.
Turn your paper 90 degrees so that the 8 1/2″ side is across the top of your scoring tool. Score at 2 1/2 and 5 3/4.
Get your Stampin’ Trimmer. With the 11″ side across the top, cut at the 5″ mark to the 1st score line. Then pick up the blade, cut from the second score line to the opposite edge of the paper. It will look like a T when you are done. (see image below)
Fold on all the score lines. You will notice that one flap is bigger than the other. There is no real reason for this. However, I use it for the adhesive. I make sure the larger flap is on top. I put it on the under side of the larger flap so that the adhesive only sticks the two flaps together. That gives you a pocket to slide the notepad in.
It’s an easy peasy project but it’s a great one. I brought it back for craft fair season and sold most of them.
