This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we are doing a color challenge. I love these bright colors....so many possibilities. I decided to make an altered notepad and pen set.
This is the inside....I used a Staples brand notepad that measures 8" x 5" and added a strip of DSP to cover the label.
Here is a closeup of the paper flower. I used both the large and small scallop circle. I wet them, crunched them up then layered them up and got this look:
Instructions on making the notepad/pen set:
Score an 8" x 12" sheet of cardstock at 5", 5 1/4", and 11".
Fold in the 11" score line and adhere down.
Crease the other 2 scores and this should be the perfect size for the notepad.
I made a 1" loop for the pen and adhered it to the NOTEPAD then glued the NOTEPAD down into the folded cardstock cover.
Decorate it all up as you like....easy gift set!!
