WorkWith Scrapbook Paper: Cute Notepad

Hey Guys; Happy Friday…it deserves a Hallejuah!

I am sure that many of us just got off our Christmas breaks or what not from work but man, is it bad that I am already anticipating the next day off! Anyhow, today, I wanted to share with you an idea that I had to make a spiral notebook using what I had. Unfortunately, I did not have any wire laying around ( and I was not willing to buy it) so I ended up turning the idea into a simple, cute notepad held together by two ribbons. If you are interested in learning how to create your own, keep on reading:

What you’ll need:

Scrapbook Paper ( any kind of paper will work but decorative paper is nice)

Notebook Paper

Hole Puncher


How you make this: 

1) Take your scrapbook paper, fold into four and cut them out. *It does not have to be perfectly cut. 

2) Take your notebook paper and cut a square piece to glue onto each piece of scrapbook paper. You can cut the corners on your paper like I did or you can just cut it anyway that you want.

3) Gather your paper all together and punch a hole into each side. You could also punch holes all across the top and weave your ribbon over and under if you’d like.

That’s all!

It really takes not a lot of time at all and just exemplifies that if something is nothing, you can make it something. This was created mainly out of scraps of scrapbook paper!

WorkWith Glitter Cardstock Paper: Shooting Star Spinners

Backstory: My good friend, Carly, gave me this very pretty blue-glitter cardstock paper a week or so ago and I just knew I had to make something with it. As I have been in the stores lately, I have noticed the usual wind blower spinner things  and figured that I would just make my own hand-held spinners using the star as the shape since the 4th of July is coming in all.

What I Used:

1 Unsharpened Pencil

1 Wall/Cardboard Tac

Blue Glitter Cardstock Paper by Recollections



How Its Done:

Step 1) Cut out an outline of a medium size star on your Cardstock paper

Step 2) Carefully, poke your tax into the center of your pencil ( do not poke it all the way through).

Step 3) Once you have made a sturdy hole into your pencil, poke your tax into the center of your star, then back into the pencil. There should be a little room in between your star/pencil so that the star can spin.

Step 4) Take a piece of tulle and glue it onto the back of your pencil




Isn’t it cute ? I think that with some parental guidance because of the sharp tacs…that I managed to poke myself with…these would be a cute little party DIY/craft for the kiddies to take home, what do you think ?
