Doodle All The Day!

This is a little notebook "purse" I made using the "Doodle This" and the "Doodle That" stamp sets. I cut a piece of copier paper 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and folded it in half and then folded it in half once more. I then cut one side at an angle. This is my pattern for the Caribbean Blue card stock and the white copier paper inside. Trace and cut out the Caribbean Blue card stock and stamp on it with the Doodle That stamp. I used Staz-on Black ink. I wasn't sure if the gel pen would cause the Basic Black ink to smear. I stamped the flower from the "Doodle This" set on Caribbean Blue card stock, again using the Staz-on Black and cut it out. I colored in the white areas with the gel pen and let it dry. Once it was dry I used a glue pen and added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to it. I colored in the center of the flower with Basic Black marker and when it was dry I added Dazzling Diamonds there as well. On the purse part I added Dazzling Diamonds to the little flowers, leaves and dots, the stems I colored in with the gel pen. I took a piece of Whisper White card stock and set it on the upper part of the purse, covering about 1/3 of it. I traced the edges and then cut them out. I then set a piece of Basic Black card stock over that, sliding it up just a little so you could see about 1/8" of it on the edge. I traced again and cut it out. I taped it in place and then drew a line with the glue pen and added some Dazzling Diamonds. When that was dry I added the flower. I punched two holes in the top to tie on the ribbon. Before I added the ribbon I cut a piece of copier paper into 4 equal pieces. I traced the purse shape and cut the 4 sheets out at one time. I folded them in half, marked where the holes would go and punched them out. Then I attached the ribbon by inserting it in the hole and tying a knot on the inside. I twisted the ribbon and then inserted the other end in the next hole and tied the knot on the inside. It's a pretty simple note pad to make! I saw a design similar to this made by Kyla Maestas. I liked it so much I thought it would be cute as a note pad much like the chicken one I posted last week. This would be great for a Make N Take or a Hostess Gift.

Thank you for stopping by!
