The legal pad holder measures 5.25" X 8.5". Inside I have included 2 pockets- one for the note pad and another for putting various items in. For mine I will include the envelopes for the cards which I should have shown in the picture.
To create this project:
1. For the cover use a 8.5"X11" sheet of card stock and score at 5.25" and 5.75", fold along the score lines.
2. Decorate the front cover. Here I created my own patterned paper using my stamps (which I will indicate the sets I used below). The measurements are white paper- 5.25"x 5" and 5.25"x 2.5" and colored strip 5.25" x 3" tearing on both sides.
3. Create pockets. Take one or two sheets of card stock measuring 4.75"x 6.5" (depending on how many pockets you want) and score at 1/2", 3/4", 5.75", and 6". Then turn paper 90 degrees and score at 1/2" and 3/4". This will create a 1/4" deep pocket. Cut the 2 bottom corners (squares) out along the score lines. Then fold along the score lines and secure with strong adhesive. I used glue dots.
4. Attach pockets to the inside using strong adhesive and decorate the inside how ever you like. I just used various scraps I had left and attached to the pad and pockets and stamped a scripture verse.
Here are the coordinating cards:
To create the patterned paper I used the following stamp sets from Sweet N Sassy stamps: Kindness, Thankful Blooms, Precious Poppies, and Majestic Monarchs (and coordinating dies). I also used pearls, rhinestones, wink of stella, and glimmer mist to accent the stationery. I used Stampin Up Early Espresso, Marina Mist, and Whisper White inks and paper.
I hope you like the project I have created today. These would make some great gifts for the holidays as well. Have a great day and happy crafting!
