Welcome to another Fun Friday!! I've got a tutorial to show you how to turn this regular notepad...
Solution - These quick and cute little personalized notepads. Just the right shape to tuck into a purse or backpack, jot a grocery list or keep your computer passwords safe.
I'm going to show you how to make a template to use so that you don't need to take your notebooks apart each time. This allows you to make one of these little beauties in minutes.
First, cut a piece of heavyweight (80-110 lb. cardstock) 3 1/8" x 5 1/8". This will be your template so you want it to be sturdy. Unbend one end of the wire spiral and turn to remove it completely. After making your template, you will never have to do this part again! Lay the cover of the notepad over your template making sure ends are even and mark each hole.
Using a paper punch to match the hole size, punch through each hole. Use scissors to cut from the top edge just to the center of each hole. This will allow you make future covers without removing the wire because you can just press the edges through the wire! Easy Peasy time saver. Gotta love that!
Now choose your papers for the front and the back. Round the edges with a paper rounder to match the notepad. Note: You may want to round the edges of the original notepad cover as well since they're done by machine and aren't always nice and neat.
Decorate as desired and you're finished!
