"Altered Notepads"


I was at Walmart the other day and of course I had to walk down the paper isle. I decided to get a three pack of these notepads. My friend Kristine had sent me one she made like this only hers was thinner and taller. I guess you could say that it was 1/3rd of an 8 1/2 x 11 inch notepad. She put a magnet on the back and it is on my fridge. I thought how cute to make bigger ones for next to the phone, on the desk, next to the computer or to give as gifts. I gave these two away to my demo's kids. They are super easy and a nice cheap gift to make.

Stamps: Stampendous
Paper: Basic Black, Summer Sun, Pink Passion, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Stazon Black
Accessories: Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, Notepad, SU Markers, Stickles

Here is what you are looking for. They come in a 3 pack. Here are the dimensions for the second one. Yes, they both are the same but I am picking the second one for the colors. Cut red cardstock 5 1/2 x 10 1/2 score at 8 1/4 and 8 1/2
The pink mat is 5 1/4 x 8 1/8 Glue the pink mat on the back of notepad, then glue the pink mat to the red cardstock flush with the 8 1/2 score line. For the image piece. The pink piece is 5 1/4 x 1 3/4 and the white piece is 5 1/8 x 1 5/8
