FBA Notebooks with Anna

Hello ME friends! Anna is here today with my Designer Series project - the sweetest notepads I made using new Favor Bag Accessory creative cuts - Cat and Bear. Do you like cute stationary? This project is for you! (I will not even try to lie about that I made these for my child!)

You really don't need too many supplies to repeat these little things. All you need is few pieces of the colored heavy card stock for the cover with the critters faces, few sheets of the ordinary office paper and the thick glue with the clips. I started with the making the covers for my notepads. I cut the silhouettes of the cat and the bear, added the details as I wanted - here are really hundreds of the variations what you can do! I added the red hat to the bear and the gold fish ti the kitty (I used a piece of the glittered card stock).

Next step can take a long time but I have a tip for you how to make it faster. Here you need the office paper and the dies with the critters silhouettes - the same you used for the covers. I used A4 sheets and could cut 8 pieces from every sheet. If you use Letter paper - you can get another amount from every sheet. I folded each sheet horizontally and vertically, obtaining at once 4 layers approximately 10-15 cm in size. Every such folded piece of paper fits a critter silhouette two times. So - 4 layers cut off two times = 8 pieces. Make as many such office paper layers as you want (or can).

Then make all the layers in a flat pile and do not forget to add the cover. Fix the layers with large paper clips. I also used pieces of the chipboard between my future notepads and clips - this more evenly distributes the pressure and leaves no traces of the clips on the paper. Now apply a little of the thick glue and evenly spread over the joint. Let the glue dry and remove the clips. The notepads are ready!!

And I have a little one-minute video how to made these notepads.



Enjoy! Have a good day!
