Altered Notepad

April 3, 2009 Sarah Coggins

Jess shared a post earlier this week on altering a notepad. I loved the idea and used it for my little craft project last night. Lately I’ve had so many things on my mind that I really need to be carrying a small notepad with me to keep track. Using a few odds and ends from my stash, I quickly recovered a boring red notepad we had into a much cuter floral one. 😉 I used the Xyron laminate/adhesive cartridge to adhere it all and give the cover a little more durability (thus the shine in my photo).

Supplies: Basic Grey patterned paper; Prima flower; Making Memories acrylic flower and tiny alpha letter stickers; Heidi Swapp journaling spot; black stamp ink; Xyron laminate/permanent adhesive cartridge; notepad.

    that's awesome! It's better than my altered notebooks! (I've only done a couple... one was a giveaway a while back....

    that is adorable and such a good idea! There are always so many things you think you'll remember and if you don't write it down, you won't!
