Cardboard UpCycle Notepad*


CARDBOARD UPCYCLE NOTEPAD
Project is 3D
Project uses My Paper Pumpkin October 2013 
[stamps, Gumball Green ink, cardboard, receipt tape]
Additional supplies...
Paper Etcetera DSP, Gumball Green, Daffodil Yellow
Ink Black
Et cetera ribbon, circle and scallop punches, circle die, large binder clip, computer 
Sprinkles and tWiNkLes* to monogrammed goodness!

Put it all together....

Glue paper to cover the cardboard piece included with your My Paper Pumpkin kit.


Use a bone folder to ensure even glue coverage.  Sand the edges lightly.


Cardboard base is ready for embellishing!


Using word processing program, open a blank document and type desired name or initials and set to desired font.  Here I used a monogram font and set the center initial to size 125.  The outside initials are set to size 72 and superscript.  The text was pasted into a table allowing six monograms per page.


The monograms fit perfectly inside the 2-1/2" circle punch.

Use a circle die to cut a coordinating color of card stock just larger than the punched circle.

Attach circles to the cardboard base and add desired embellies.

Use the scallop circle punch to cut out the receipt tape.  Stamp additional images as desired.

Attach ribbon to the binder clip.  Here I used a piece of canvas ribbon and an extra long piece of Gumball Green ribbon.  I tied a simple knot first.  Then, I tied the Gumball Green ribbon into a simple bow.  Stamp ribbon.  Add scalloped 'notes' to your notepad.
 Enjoy!
