How About A Make & Take?

From "just a scratch pad" to an adorable "note pad."

To make this you will need a scratch pad with the chipboard backing. Cut a piece of Bashful Blue card stock to cover the scratch pad. Then cut a piece of Whisper White card stock 1/8" shorter on each side. Before you affix the white card stock you will want to add your image. For this one I used the set "Petal Prints" by Stampin' Up! I used Bashful Blue and More Mustard markers and colored the flower in. I huffed on it, stamped once, moved it over, stamped again and then I huffed once more and stamped a third time. I took the "Curvy Verse" set and added my words. Sponge the edges with Bashful Blue and affix it to the blue card stock. Take a small piece of the blue card stock and add it to the top, ripping one end before you affix it. Add a ribbon and you've got a nice Hostess gift or a fun Make & Take!
I did have a question about where you attach the Bashful Blue card stock. You just tape it right over the first page. The top scrap layer you put on that you tear, you make it a bit longer so it wraps around both the front and the back.

Thank you for looking!

This is adorable, but I confess my "density"....when you attach the blue cardstock to the pad...what are you attaching it to?...the first piece of paper? or are you attaching it to the chipboard on the back and using the pad "backwards"...seems like if you attach it to the back of the pad, then you won't have a stable back for the pad, but maybe that doesn't matter? Thx!
