Skinny Notepad Tutorial

Here is the finished project we will be making today.

First you cut your main color cardstock to 5 3/4 x 8 1/8 inches.

Then you score it at 2 3/4 inches in from each long side.

To decorate the front cut a piece of coordinating cardstock 2 1/2 x 7 3/4 inches.

Finish decorating the front as desired. The yellow strip is this picture is 2 1/2 x 3/4 inches. I used a circle punch for the notes which was printed off from my computer. Cut a tab of cardstock 2 1/2 x 2 to cover the top of the notepad. wrap it around the top of the notepad and glue down.

Glue the notepad to the inside of the cardstock.

Viola you are done! The notepads I use are from the Dollar Tree and then taken to Office Depot and cut lengthwise down the middle. They are 3 for a $1 and cost $2 to cut 2 packs generally. If you have any questions about this tutorial please leave your question in a comment below. Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day.
