Looking Back - Notepads

Here's a blast from the past. These cute little notepads were made with the small black composition books. I made these a while back and used the Linen Print designer paper which is now retired. HINT: Stampin' Up!'s two sided paper is perfect for this project: the paper is sturdy and using one side of the paper for the covers and the other side of the paper for the binding gives you perfectly coordinated books every time!

These are simple to make. Trace the front cover and the back cover on the back side of the pattern you want on your front and back. After cutting out the front and back, adhere it to the cover with liquid glue. I use the Tombow Mono Multi. HINT: Use a foam brush to spread the glue to the edges for complete coverage.

Cut the binding strip 2 1/2" x 6", apply glue using the same method, and wrap the binding. HINT: Use a bone folder to wrap the strip tightly around the binding. Use the tip of the bone folder to score the corners and the side of the bone folder to press the paper to the book on all sides.

Then decorate the cover. I stamped titles along the binding on each notebook, color on color, and added a label to the front.
