I used this super cute Kraftin' Kimmie stamp. This is Drucilla. She's just...naughty! I decided to color her with Copics and then put her on the front of this notepad cover...to create a Naughty or Nice list. Or you can use it as a Christmas "to-do" list. Everyone can always use more notepads around the house!
I covered a standard 5x8 inch notepad with cardstock and paper. Very easy project! I kept this one simple so you could see how to make up a whole batch of them for gifts! I think the papers are Scrapworks (the Naughty strip) and Bella Blvd (the stripes). I embellished with a few pearls. And ta-da!
Just cut your cardstock to about 10 1/5" by 8 1/4" or so. I made a 1/4" wide spine so that the cover would close properly. I also covered the top of the notepad with a strip of paper to hide the ugly binding. Easy peasy.
I stamped the sentiments with Papertrey Ink and Studio G stamps. I also used my yummy lacy circle Nestie. And another of those glitter snowflakes I found at Michael's. I wish I'd purchased a few more packs of those. They are probably sold out by now.
I think I'll give this to one of my scrappy friends. Won't say who...because she reads my blog! Have fun making you gifts or Christmas cards! Thanks for stopping by!
