"The Skinny"

I just finished decorating this 'skinny' notepad. It was so fun and easy!

I bought a pack of 3 note pads at Dollar Tree and took them to my local copy store and had them cut in-half. So, I ended up with 6 skinny notepads -- what a deal!

I used fun, patterned paper by Sassafras to cover the pad, then I adhered sheer ribbon around it, with a tie closure on the side. For the front, I added a stamped image from American Art Stamp. I colored it with my Prismacolor pencils, then blended with gamsol and a stump. At the top, I layered several flowers to finish it off! I really liked how it turned out!

The measurements to cover this size pad: Cut cardstock at 5.3" x 8.2" and score at 2.4" and 2.6".
Below, I've posted a smaller picture of the inside:

Super cool. I have a box of those skinny note pads too. I should cover them. Yours is really cute.
