I remember seeing @Bunny1kenobi send hand-designed notepads in several swaps, which gave me this idea! I’ve been doing a lot of paint pouring. I’ll pick up the excess on atc blanks. I have a bunch of cardboard pieces from cat food boxes, and dedided to make my own notepads! Each has 20 pages of paper and they are 3.5" by 5".
I have made 13 or so today! I have some teacher friends who are gonna tag team watch my cat when I’m on vacay, so I think I’ll pick up some cool pens and give them a pad as part of their thank you.
So, first, I get my supplies. I cut my notebook paper to size, cardboard to size, and go one by one using double sided tape to adhere the pages together.
I put the tape on the edge of the side of my pour painting atc blanks that will be front and fold it in. Then, I use 2-3 strips of tape each side to hold my piece on.
Super pretty and functional notepads. These are addictive! And, would look cool with masterboards or any patterned paper!
Watch out STS! Someone say stocking stuffer?!
Here are close ups of some I really like.
You may notice I don’t have the same width on each painted part.
Oh well. Character!
Thanks for looking!
