Today’s project is a pocket notepad in more ways than one. It’s a notepad that can easily fit in your pocket and it’s a origami pocket with a notepad in it…
I’ve often admired these napkin (or diaper) folds but never made one. I remembered that my lovely friend Jill made some at Christmas for After Eight mints so I had a look at her video tutorial to see how they’re made. If you’d like to check it out too please click here
I needed mine to be bigger to slip in my A7 notepad so I used a piece of the Garden Lane designer series paper cut to 8″ x 8″ and then did the same folding as in Jill’s video. With hindsight I might have been better with 9″ x 9″ as the pad would have slid a bit further down.
I used some Soft Sea Foam card to cover the front of my little notepad and then added some more of the Garden Lane paper. I stamped the ‘just a note’ and the little bird from the Music From The Heart stamp set using Old Olive ink onto Soft Sea Foam card and cut it with my Story Label punch. I cut another label from Whisper White card, cut it in half lengthwise and added it to the back of the stamped one.
To decorate the pouch I stamped the ‘For you’ from Beauty Abounds in Old Olive ink onto Soft Sea Foam card and trimmed it to fit. I glued the end into the fold to keep it secure.
I used my Daisy Punch on the Old Olive vellum from the Perennial Essence vellum pack to cut 3 daisies and glued them together. I added a 1/2″ circle of Pineapple Punch card to the middle to cover up the glue marks. Then I remembered out those adorable fuzzy Perennial Essence Floral Centers and added one of them too.
I couldn’t decide which pen to add it so I added two! I think this would make a nice gift and if you dressed it up in a cello bag then it could make a lovely item to sell at craft fairs.
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project. I’ve listed the products I’ve used below. You can click on any of the links to visit my online Stampin’ Up! shop.
