JustRite Notepad and a special announcement


My JustRite Stampers project to share with you this week is a note pad cover.  This is such a super easy way to alter an ordinary object and can be made to fit any size note pad or post-it note pad.  
The JustRite stamp is from the 1 1/16" collection which is on sale for a limited time at JustRite Stampers 

What you will need:
  • JustRite Tiny Words Borders and Centers 
  • Spellbinders ™ Fleur De Lis, Standard Circles Lg and Classic Scalloped Circles Lg die templates
  • Little Yellow Bicycle Freshprint Clothesline paper
  • Scor-it
  • Pearl embellishments
  • Embroidery floss



Start off by measuring your paper pad.  Design a template to use with your patterned paper and for future  projects.  My pad is 7.5 cm wide, 10cm long and 1cm thick (I think my notepad was made overseas because the metric measurements worked out perfectly).  Score your first line at 10cm and your second line 1cm after the first.  Score the 3rd line 10cm after the 2nd line and the 4th line 1cm after the 3rd.


Position the Fleur De Lis die template with the cut side down on the end flap of your paper. Fold the remaining sides of  your paper under the die template with a piece of cardstock between the front flap and the other sections. This will ensure that the die template does not cut through all your layers.  The front flap is held securely in position with a magnet which latches onto the bottom flap.  I used Beacon's 3-in-1 advanced Craft glue to secure the top magnet in place.


You are now ready to assemble your project.  Embellish the front cover with stamps and pearls.  Adhere your pad to the inside cover with adhesive.  Remember to secure the other magnet to the front of the other cover flap (mine is discretely hidden under the white stitched cardstock).

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Let me know if you have any questions regarding this project and I will gladly try to answer them for ya :)
