Altered Junior Notepad

I saw this great tutorial on Mish Mash's blog (<------ Click Here to Check it Out-scroll down a bit). I finally got some notepads and had a chance to make one last night - very quick and easy. THAT I like!

I gave this to my dear friend today...and the inside shows the purse card I made earlier this week that is "so her".You can see when you open the cover up that there is a small pocket on the left-hand side. Perfect for holding coupons, stamps, envelopes to mail, etc. Great little notepad for the grocery list and then put all your coupons on the left-hand side, wouldn't that be snazzy? The top of the junior notepad is covered with decorative packing tape - it has polka dots, just like the outside paper!

The outside of the holder has the word "friendship"; I think the picture below shows that a bit better. There are also 4 pink jewels in each corner which this picture shows better (click on any picture to get an up-close view). I colored the huggybellas with a combination of crayons, markers and odorless mineral spirits.

I can't wait to make a few more of these; they were fun and have endless possibilities.

Thanks for stopping by; have a great weekend. Hugs, ~M.

  2. Love the notepad!!! Quick question, is the pocket another piece of cardstock? I tried making one this morning and I can't figure it out with the 8 1/2 x 11 sheet, or did you use 12 x 12? Thanks!!!

  3. This is such a cute gift idea with the holidays. Great projects
