PTI ~ Make It Monday Notepads

Erin Lincoln just continues to amaze me with her creative energy. This weeks Make it Monday tutorial was how to make these adorable little notepads. You can find out all the details HERE on Nicole's blog. Here's one that I made using a postal theme:
Here's a peek at the inside pages
I used 4 of each page so I can make two books using one sheet of each color paper. I also adhered them the long way since they were supposed to be like little post cards. I used my postage stamp scissors to trim the printed paper on the cover.
I liked how Keri let her printed paper fold back into the notepad from the bottom so I did that as well. It's nice because it contains the note cards so I don't have to worry about them falling out.

These were so much fun to make I went right back to work making another set that I'll post in a later post. Thanks so much for looking! Blessings~ Birgit

I love both of the note books you made. This one in particular is my favorite--I love how you made them like post cards. I remember buying those sorts of postcard stacks when I was traveling.
