Mini Notebooks

Hello friends! Today I have a fun little project to share with you.  I recently purchased some mini notepads and turned them into cute little Valentine gifts with matching decorated paper clips.

Here’s how I customized my cover:

  • I carefully unwound the wire from my notebook and removed the front cover
  • Using the cover as a template, I trimmed a piece of kraft card stock to size
  • Next, I laid the cover over the kraft card stock and punched tiny holes across the top with my crop-a-dile
  • I rounded the bottom corners of my cover with a corner punch, and re-attached it to the note pad

Now you’re ready to decorate!  I used several different papers from the Red Sampler Pack (Canvas Corp), a Martha Stewart heart border punch, red ric rac ribbon from Petaloo, and some natural colored burlap string.

I also created a decorative jumbo paper clip using Prima flowers and tiny white pearls.

Now it’s your turn to share the projects you’ve been working on. Stop by the CURRENT LINK PARTY and add any project that includes a few products from companies Cropstop carries in the store! Happy Crafting!
