Hello there, Amy from The Happy Scraps here today. I’m excited to show you how to make these cute little Mini Notebooks. They are the perfect thing to throw in your purse or a tote, making sure that you have something to write on if you need it. They would also make a great gift to give to a friend, and they are so quick to make!
I picked out a few supplies from the Jen Hadfield Everyday collection and grabbed my Cinch as well.
Using the Everyday collection 6×6 paper pad, I picked out the paper that I thought went well with the cards I cut out from the cut-outs with gold foil cardstock.
I trimmed the cardstock down to 5 1/2″ x 4″ for the horizontal books and 5″ x 4 1/4″ for the vertical books, and then I cut a stack of white printer paper to be the same size. I also cut a piece of white cardstock to go on the back of the book.
Using the Cinch, I punched my holes.
I cut the wire binding to the size I needed, and put my paper on the wire. Then I used the back of the cinch to close the binding.
I attached my foiled cards to the front of the books. I wanted to use dimensional adhesive, but since I made these to be used in purses, I thought it would be better if they were flat.
I added some colored twine and the arrow to the bottom of the one on the far right to finish these up. I can’t wait to have one of these in my purse, it will be sure to brighten my day, any time I need to write something down.
Aren’t these Everyday collection cards perfect for these books?
