Last week, I worked on planting some flowers, cleaning up the yard, and planting our garden. Over the weekend, I worked on a few smaller projects; the kind that only take about 15 minutes or so and do not require much brain power but simply fun and a little creativity. I love these types of DiY projects for busy days when I don't have a lot of time to tackle the big stuff but still need to do something creative.
So, here ya go!
We found some fun things, purchased a few and then made these to add to their bags of creativity!
-white copy paper
-scraps of fun paper
-glue dots, photo mount squares, glue, something to hold your cut out designs in place
Once everything is cut, then all you do is fold them in half, card stock serving as the outer cover. I took my stapler and stapled (while folded close) right along the top edge of the notepad, three times across in a row.
Next, I covered those staples with some fun washi tape. Then I added more washi tape on the bottom too. You can't go wrong with more washi tape.....ever! ;)
Lastly, play around with your papers and create your chosen design.
The options are endless! You can make the notepads bigger, smaller; use different colored or patterned card stock, etc.
I think I need one for myself now! As always, once I get started on something, then "the swirlings" in my head won't stop!
