While I was surfing the net I came
across a very simple way to cover a mini legal pad.
I know you will want to make one. You can
find the pattern here
The cover takes one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock.
The only change I made to the pattern....I didn't trim
off the 1/8 inch from the 11 inch side. I left my cover at the full 11 inches.
See those gold dots behind the designer paper? From the new designer acetate. I love
this stuff! I also used it to back the delicate ornament. The gold ribbon is also new in the catalog.
Used it for the bow and the tags. Stamp set retired More Merry Messages.
Inside view. Love the pattern for the cover as it makes a pocket for the inside. I
covered it with the same designer paper as the outside cover "This is Christmas"
I added some long tags to put in the pocket.
They were made with elegant tag punch. I added
some lines down the tags. I'm thinking Naughty and Nice lists!
Here is the back view of the cover. The front of the cardstock just wraps around
to the back and is attached with sticky tape.
Since I had another mini pad I made this cover.
It uses a retired sewing theme set from SU, and a die cut from Tim Holtz.
Love the very vintage sewing theme!
Made more tags for the pocket.
Added some buttons. I think I'm going
to have to get some more pads. These would make awesome gifts!
Christmas is coming!
