Take Note

I don't know about you, but I need a pad of paper by every phone in my house. We generally use scrap paper but had recently run out. And, it was time to upgrade.

Did you know that Sticky Note Kits are available at ArnoldGrummer's website?? 

Sticky Note Books: Pattern & Boards for 24 Books
The kit comes complete with templates and cardboard covers and spines!  Everything you need to get started except paper! I made a couple of pieces of pretty pink paper using my Pour handmold.

After making my paper, I used the templates to cut the cover and inside piece.  Once cut, I glued the covers and spine to the paper. After that dried, I  added the inside paper( a scrap of pattern paper)  to give it a finished look.

The cover can be decorated and I chose to use a casting mold

I painted mine and added lace underneath to finish the top of the pad.




Isn't this pretty? Looks much nicer than scrap paper!



I am thinking I will more not only for me but also to give as gifts!

Thank you for joining me today for another fun project to use up those recycled papers! Please join us on Facebook for more inspiration and ideas! Also be sure to share your projects with us!
