A small, handy decorated notepad can be a perfect gift for a birthday or thank you. I made similar little pads and attached a little bag of candy kisses as a thank you to some friends who helped me with my daughter’s wedding a couple of years ago.
All you need is a little 3″ X 5″ notepad found in any drug store, Basic Black cardstock, Whisper White Craft stamp pad and a stamp set. In this example, I used Stampin’ Up! Just Believe stamp set.
Sometimes getting around the spiral binding can seem a little tricky. So I created this video tutorial to show you how.
As you can see it’s super easy to get the chalkboard effect with the black cardstock and the white craft pad. Also, I like to keep the front of the notebook super clean and simple without a lot of embellishments because I think it’s easier to carry with you for taking quick notes. But isn’t it just so much more fun to take notes in a sweetly decorated notebook?! 🙂
Be sure to use lots of adhesive to keep your cover intact. I used SNAIL adhesive in the video, but Multipurpose Liquid Glue would be an excellent choice too.
