Quick Cover Sticky Notes Weekend Project

It's actually a very quick process to cover a sticky note pad. Take your note pad and measure how wide it is. Pick out your card stock color and cut a piece that width.

Now this is the tricky part, sort of. It's the most difficult part of the cover but yet it is still quick and easy. Measure the top of the pad and write the number down. Measure the edge of the pad and write that number down plus add that number to the top number. Now the bottom measurement should be the same as the top. Write that number down and plus add it to the other two totals. Now you will cut your piece of card stock using the total you got from adding the three surfaces.

And finally you will score your piece. Score at the first number you wrote down. Then score again for the thickness of the pad. Fold on the score lines. Tape the pad in place and decorate the front as desired.

I decorated the front of mine using the Stampin' Up! "Sweet Pea" download . I SO love this download. I was going to add some ribbon or buttons but remembered how they rip the paper when I dig then out of my purse. SO leaving it plain and smooth is the best way to go. Plus they stack nicer for storing. The word "notes" is from a custom stamp I had made for me several years ago.

I'm going to be making some of these for the fall craft fair. They were quick and easy enough to do and I could make a bunch in no time. Gotta love crafts like that! These little gems would be great for gifts, hostess appreciation gifts, customer appreciation gifts, craft fairs, stamp camp, make n takes and of course a fun teacher's gift. Oh and not to mention a GREAT stocking stuffer!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
