Mini Note Pads

BLING BLING!!!  I made these little Junior Mini Note Pads for hostess gifts!  So if you're hosting a workshop for me - you're gonna get one!!!  My SU friend from Colorado - Celisa - made one for me....so I just had to try them...EASY PEASY!


Here are the details:

  • I bought a pack of Junior Legal Pads and took them to my copy shop - they cut them vertically for me - for a VERY nominal fee;
  • The Junior Legal Pad cover is Real Red 5 1/2” x 8 1/4” cardstock scored at 2 5/8” and 2 7/8” down the middle;
  • The little layer that covers the top of the notepad is 2" x 2 1/2";
  • The pens can be purchased at any office supply store - they have the clear barrel;
  • 11" of Pretty In Pink Satin Ribbon from the Occasions Mini Catalog for the cover;
  • 4" of Pretty In Pink Ribbon for the pen holder;
  • With All My Love stamp set (118134 Wood Mount & 118623 Clear Mount) from the Occasions Mini catalog;
  • I used Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and the Real Red Craft pad to emboss "Friend";
  • New Pinking Hearts Border Punch for the Pink layer under "Friend";
  • I have a PDF file with the calendar....leave a comment and I'll email it to you!

Here's a close up of the back...notice how I staggered the ribbon on the back.  If you do that - you'll be catching both pieces with the regular tape to help secure the pen holder.


I used Sticky Strip in the top, bottom and both sides.  I put an extra piece over the ribbon too - I don't want the pen holder to fall out.

It's hard to see here...but Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder was used on the "friend" stamp - just keeps up with the whole BLING of the Sending Love Specialty Designer Paper!
