Notepads

Okay, I have to start paying more attention to where I find some of my ideas I share with you, so that I can give credit where credit is due.
.
I saw notepads like these on a blog somewhere...if it happens to be you, please take the credit.

Here are some that I made.

Here's a quick run-down of how to make them.

I bought these writing tablets at Dollarama. I then took them to Staples, and they cut them in half for me for $1.
(I bought 5 tablets, and ended up with 10 notepads...all for $6)
To find out the length of CS I needed, I measured the length...mine was 9".


And I measured the binding...
plus what I wanted to hang over the front.


I like to make scallops on mine (see tutorial below on how to make scallops with your corner rounder), so I leave some CS on each side, and end.

Before I glue my CS to the pad of paper, I score where the folds will be.
I fold the first score line, and mark where to score the second score line.
Don't forget to cut the cover off the pad of paper.
I like to put the glue on the pad of paper, and then 'wrap' my CS around the corners....rather than putting the glue on the CS.

And that's it! Nice and quick.
Enjoy,
Deneen

what a great idea! I didn't know that Staples would do that for someone. This is a much easier way to make note cards than cutting all my own paper - gluing it together and then decorating. Thank you so much for this idea!!Candy
