DIY Notepad

DIY Notepad

I made these adorable little notepads out of Scrapbook Paper and a piece of Cardboard


I'm totally addicted!  They only take a few minutes to make, and I can't stop!  
Here's how I did it:

I cut out a piece of Cardboard to 4"x5"
and then a piece of Scrapbook Paper a bit larger than the cardboard, as shown here
I glued it down (on the non printed side) with some Mod Podge

Then I cut the corners of the paper, and folded the paper up and glued as I went
Kind of like wrapping a present :)

I cut a smaller piece of matching paper and glued it over the bare spot
Then I took a binder clip and covered it with the Scrapbook Paper too using Mod Podge

And here's the finished product!  Isn't is adorable??!! 

I also made this one!  Pink Zebra Print...yeah baby!
This is so easy, quick and affordable.  This would be a great gift for a teacher, a co-worker, a friend, any one really.  I put mine by the phone for doodles and messages :)

I'm seriously loving this project....So don't throw out your cardboard, and break out those scraps of paper and make something super fun!

I'm going to go make more right now!

Happy Crafting!


  1. These are great and so handy I'm sure...


  2. Thank you Megan! I have had a lot of fun with these. I made one that had my husbands business logo on all over it, and that was cool for him to take to work. I really enjoyed this craft :)
