Studio Sunday

Hello Sassy Sistahs! Today I have a tutorial on how to create a notepad cover. The great thing about this project is that it is not very difficult and it makes a great last minute gift! Ok, let's get started!

Materials: Hole punch, patterned paper, colored Sassy Image, double-sided tape, notepad, ribbon, scoring tool, cardstock.

Step 1: cut cardstock to 5"X11" and measure and score 7 1/4", 8", and 8 1/2" from the bottom so that your cardstock looks like this.

Hint: If you do not have a score-pal or other scoring tool, you can use the groove of your paper cutter and a stylus to create the same effect!

Step 2: Decorate the front of the cardstock just as you would a card and adhere your sassy image to the front. Then cute a 1/2" X 4 3/4" strip of patterned paper.

Step 3: adhere the strip of paper to the top of the cardstock front and punch two holes in the top.

Step 4: Thread ribbon through the two holes and tie a bow.

Step 5: flip cardstock over and place double-sided tape on top portion of the cover. Be sure to place tape over the ribbon as well so it will lay down smoothly.

Step 6: Line cover up with notepad and adhere top of front cover.

Step 7: Fold cover over and adhere to the back of the notpad.

Voila! One easy-peazy notepad cover! Hope you enjoyed this tutorial. If you have any questions at all about any of the steps or materials used, please feel free to email me at
