Hello, hello, hello!
I am very happy to be bringing you my inspirational post for Little Miss Muffet Stamps today!
And a little tutorial too! Smiles.
How would you like to make this noteholder?
The quickest part is the notebook itself. You can make your own in around 15minutes tops.
The longest part (and also the fun part) is decorating it once your done!)
Here is your quick and easy step by step.
For this I recommend Thick Centura Pearlescent Card (or at least no less than a 300gsm for making this.)
Cut your A4 piece of card to measure 10 1/2” x 6. 1/2”.
Now lay it lengthwise on your score board.
You need to score lines at 4 1/2” – 5” & 5 1/2” like so:-
And score a VERY LIGHT line (for guidance later) at 6”.
Turn once clockwise so that it is now in portrait (as in standing tall with the short edges top & bottom in front of you.)
Score where your cut lines will be at 2” in from the right edge and again at 4” – Between your FIRST scoreline and your THIRD scoreline.
Now cut where you scored.
Now fold your score lines and be sure to burnish them with your score tool to make them crisp.
Next – add double sided sticky tape below & above where your cut out part is – place your tape between the third (deeps score) and fourth (faint score) scores lines like shown:-
Remove the tape backing and fold your third score line to the faint fourth line and press down onto the tape firmly to stick in place.
When you open it back out it should now look like thi:-
Okay now we need to fill it! Smiles.
STEP ONE – INSIDE PAGES:-
First of all you need to decide how much paper you’re going to stick inside. Then you need to cut roughly a half inch to an inch smaller than your completed cover.
Then you set this aside, and take another 300gsm piece of card and cut it to measure 2” x 3”.
STEP TWO – INSIDE:-
Score lengthways at 1/2”. 1” & 1 1/2”.
Add double sided tape between your scores.
STEP THREE – INSIDE:-
Burnish the two outer score lines and fold as above.
Peel off your tape backing and stick to your pre cut sheets of paper.
STEP SEVEN – INSIDE:-
Place double sided tape to the back of your paper pad. Stick it to the bottom of your inside cover.
You are now ready to decorate! Smiles.
For mine I added some gorgeous flower ribbon I have in my crafty cupboard.
I also added this gorgeously sweet image from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.
She is called Jnr Hatter Charlotte and I adore her!
To bring her to life I used my Copics in the following shades:-
My paper is an old one from my Tanya Whellan Floral Pavillion Paper Pack. And my layer card is from my Roy G Biv Core’Dinations Card Pack.
The die is my Spellbinders Timeless Rectangles.
Of course you can cover these any way you choose.
These are two others which I created at the same time.
(I first posted this tutorial here a while back on my old blog.)
The challenges I would love to enter into with my notepad and pen holder are:-
1. Digi Choosday – Punches/Dies.
2. Papertake Weekly – Spots or Stripes.
3. Through The Craft Room Door – Always Anything Goes.
4. Craft Your Passion – Always Anything Goes.
5. The Papershelter – Ribbon and/or Lace.
Thank you so much for stopping by today.
Hugs & Happy Crafting Everyone!
