Mini Notebooks

For this week's Make It Monday, over at the Papertrey Ink blog, Melissa is asking us to make sweet little mini die cut notebooks. Hers were very darling and I was happy to play along ...


I cut a 3"x4" back for my notebooks from some of the patterned papers that were included in the Shakers & Sprinkles Make It Market Kit. Next I cut the toppers out of PTI Kraft card and then die cut the edges of each one with a different border. I die cut the note pages from copy paper, using the Simply Framed die, and then stamped the top page of each book with a sentiment. Some felt flowers and leaves finished things off.

Supplies (everything is from PTI unless otherwise noted)

Paper - Kraft, Hibiscus Burst, Aqua Mist, Harvest Gold card; Shakers & Sprinkles patterned paper; copy paper
Stamps - Flower Fusion #6
Inks - Pure Poppy, Hawaiian Shores, Harvest Gold
Dies - Simply Framed, Nostalgic Notions kit, Pinking Shears Border, Embroidered Dots Frames, Chevron Stripes Border, Ruby Rose, Happiness in Bloom Leaves
Felt - Simply Chartreuse, Limeade Ice, Pure Poppy, Hibiscus Burst, Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist, Vintage Cream, Harvest Gold
Miscellaneous - pearls from stash
