CRAFT IT: SMALL POCKET NOTEBOOKS
I meant to have this post out last week, but the strangest thing happened. A few weeks ago, my hubby and I spent a day to clean out our basement (which holds my craft room and office), and my stapler mysteriously disappeared after that. I looked for it for days, then I found it. In my car! Beats me how it ended up there.
Why is that important? These little notebooks are bound by staples, which is probably the easiest and quickest method to make them. They are also convenient, to fit in your purse or back pocket. But the real fun comes in choosing sweet little card stock and stickers that make them both personal and fun!
TOOLS & MATERIALS:
Card stock trimmed to 4" x 6"
DIRECTIONS (FOR ONE BOOKLET):
1. To make the cover, score the card stock at 3", then fold.
2. Spell out a witty phrase or your initials using the adhesive letters, and use a ruler to help achieve a straight line.
3. Gather 3 sheets of printer paper and trim them to 3 3/4" x 5 3/4" (if you own a heavy-duty stapler, I encourage you to add more paper). Fold the papers over in half. This will give your booklet 12 pages.
4. Insert the folded paper into the cover, turn over, and add two staples in the spine near the top and bottom.
Aren't they cute? I could make them all day!
