Post It Notebook for Halloween


Hi Dandi Crafters, over at Sugar Sweet Paper Treats it is my turn to host the challenge and serve the winning guest blog candy. Make sure to pop over and show me some LOVE. LOL This months challenge is to make a notebook. Bind it, cinch it, alter it, post it, make it large or mini, it does matter just make a notebook. I am giving away the following blog candy.

I made a cute little Halloween Post It Notebook. I love notebooks, altered, mini, composition books, whatever, I love them. This is very easy to make. I used a couple of pieces of Halloween paper. It came in a variety pack , 8 sheets for a $1.00 at Target. It was so generic it didn't even have a manufacturer's name on it. LOL But it was cute so, "hey, there are worse ways to spend a $1." LOL I glued the papers to either side of card stock to give the notebook some weight. I decorated the front with orange grosgrain ribbon. the scallop circle and cat are from Cricut Cartridge Create A Critter. The Cat is cute at 1.25 inches high and the the scallop circle is 1.50 inches. I inked the sides of the notebook with black ink and the scallop circle with orange ink. I used glitter paste on the bow tie and nose. The eyes are 2 tiny rhinestone, no bigger than a thought. LOL I then added a Halloween themed post it notepad to inside.

Here's the how to scoop:
•cardstock, double sided is best but not required.
•Cut card stock at 3.25 inches high by 8.5 inches long if you are going to round the corners as I did.
•Score at 4, 4.5, 5 inches
•Cut 2 slits from the first score line of 4 to the third score line at 5 taking note to center the slits from the middle.
•Then fold mountain fold the first and last score line with the middle score being a valley. Glue the last mountain fold down to the back and pop out the slit middle so it forms a slot to hold your mini pen.
I can't wait to see your entries over at Sugar Sweet Paper Treats
