Simple Gift Notepads

Hi everyone. I thought today I'd finally get around to editing the photos I took of the gifts I made for my catalogue launch party last month - I love making notepads, they're a great gift, and doubly so when there are lots of wishlist notes to take!
I use inexpensive notepads from a discount store and just create a cover whatever size I need. These were the tall kind - which is my favourite shape for decorating. The covers are super simple, cut a rectangle and add a couple of score lines for the spine.
I decorated the covers with my fav paper - Greenhouse Gala. How great is that zig zag stripe?! The stamps are from the Apple Blossoms hostess set you've seen me use a lot - I love this one and it's perfect for making notepads.

Inside I added a pad topper using the scallop edge punch. This gives a nice finished edge and helps keep the pages in place too.

Stamps: Apple Blossoms
Paper & Card:
Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Baja Breeze Greenhouse Gala DP
Real Red, Baja Breeze, Wild Wasabi
Circle, Round Tab, Scallop Edge, Word Window
Choc Chip Ribbon, Real Red Brad, Dimensionals
