Just a Note! -Small Notebook Tutorial

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator stampwithpeg – Small Notebook Tutorial.


I promised you a tutorial and here it is, the basics are all the same and then you can decorate them any way you prefer, these are a few easy ones I came up with as examples.

I have used small notepads for these but you can use the same principles for any size you like.

Measure your notepad, mine measured   length – 3 15/16″ x width – 3 1/4″  (8.3cm x 10cm),

Measure the thickness, which in this case was 1/4″ (0.5 cm), then add 1 1/2″ (4cm) for the back.

Add 1/8″ ( 0.3cm ) to the length then add this to the thickness and back allowance, which in my case was – 3 15/16 + 1/8 + 1/4 + 1 1/2 inches ( 10.0 + 0.3 + 0.5 + 4 cm ) giving a total of 5 13/16″ ( 14.8cm )

Then add 1/8″ ( 0.3cm ) to the width so – 3 1/4 + 1/8 (8.3 + 0.3) = 3 3/8″  ( 8.6cm ).

Cut your chosen card stock using these measurements – 5 13/16″ x 3 3/8″  (14.8cm x 8.6cm)

Score along the long side at 1 1/2 and 1 3/4 inches ( 4cm and 4.5cm ) – back allowance and thickness.

To utilise this for any size notepad, cut cardstock at:-

Length plus 1/8″ (0.3cm) + thickness + back allowance, 1 1/2″ (4cm)  x   Width plus 1/8″ (0.3cm), then score as above.

Decorate to your own taste, then fold and burnish the score lines and stick the back allowance of the card to the back of the notepad.

Remember if you do order, add the hostess code which is shown top right (or at the bottom on mobiles), as at the end of the month I will close off this code and anyone who has used it will get a Stampin’ Up! product in the post from me. This will not come in with your order as it is directly from me, this is as well as a little thank you card and handmade gift that I send as a thank you each month you order from me just for being a customer, I am so humbled by people choosing me to purchase from and it is my way of trying to show this.
Please make sure you allow contact as if you do not I will not be able to send you this.
If your order is over £150 please do not use the code as you will get the hostess benefits yourself with your order.
Happy Crafting
