This is a quick and super-easy-super-cute idea from our friend Jess at Craft Cafe. (Who ALSO calls herself a “Craftista!) You take a cheap-o dime store spiral bound pocket notepad, remove the cover, and make a new one with pretty papers, rub-ons, stickers, or other embellishments. It’s a great way to use up those odd-and-ends of scrapbook/cardmaking projects.
I’ve done something similar with mini composition notebooks that I got a the dollar store. For those, I didn’t remove the cover, just added a new one on top using my own hand-made fabric paper. I also jazzed it up with a work pebble and some grosgrain ribbon.
Anyway, Mother’s Day will sneak up on us faster than you think- what about whipping up a dozen or so of these and gifting them to your favorite Mamas? Who doesn’t need another notepad to keep track of…well, everything?
