Skinny Notepads

Hi everybody, I'm Shakey from Crafty Pink Butterfly. Today I will be share with you how to make these cute Skinny Note Pads that you can personalize any way you need.
for the note pad I bought 5x8 writing pad from Staples and took it to their copy counter and had them cut the red line off and then cut in 3 times vertically.
These are the supplies you will need
8.5 x 5 piece of cardstock
8x 2 1/8 piece of pattern paper
1 5/8 x 1 7/8 piece of pattern paper
2 inch scallop oval (Art Philosophy)
1.5 oval (Art Philosophy)
Ribbon
Marker
Adhesive
Note pad
Stamps ( I used Lawn Fawn Jessie's ABCs, these are great stamps. You should check these out.)

First score the 8.5x5 paper at 2 3/8x 2 5/8.
Next I died the Seem Binding ribbon with a Copic marker. Then glue the ribbon to the solid cardstock and attach the pattern paper.


Now tape your the 1 5/8 x 1 7/8 piece of pattern paper to the top of the note pad then apply the adhesive to the back of the pad and put in the in the holder.

Lastly stamp your sentiment to the ovals and attach to front and your all done. Easy Peasy.
Hope you like and thanks for visiting.
