Just a little notebook





This is just a little notebook I made from a 5" x 8" tablet. These are so simple and would make great stocking stuffers!! It only takes one piece of 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock and a 5"(x 12) strip of 12 x 12 DSP (Designer Series Paper). This was the very first one I made. Kind of a trial run I guess. I realized I needed to add a little more on the width of the paper. On the other ones I cut my cardstock at 8" x 10 1/2". On the long side, you then want to score your paper at 5 1/8" and again at 5 3/8". Basically a 1/4" binding area in the middle of the paper. Before you adhere the notebook to this cardstock, layer a piece of the DSP over the top of the notepad binding. ( See 2nd photo) Then adhere the notebook to the right side of the 2nd score line and fold the paper over the top of the pad. WA LA!!!! Now decorate the front any way you would like!!! This might sound confusing but it is really very easy!!!
