Note Pad Tutorial

Good evening folks i hope you all had a fab weekend especially you lovely mums out there, i had a lovely weekend myself with lots of visitors and a lot of fun and laughter. I would just like to say thank you to my new followers whilst i'm here too.

Any way i have been asked if i would do a tutorial on my note pads that i made for our Crafts and Me blog hop, well i've been messing around today and thought i would give it a go now its going to take me ages to type it as i'm a one finger typist lol.

You will need your A4 card scoring board nesties two sheets of 8X8 papers a ruler pencil and double sided tape, plus you image and some ribbon.

You now need to score your A4 card at the desired size i normally put my pad on the card and score according to what i want but i have measured it for you today I've scored at 5cm - 5 1/2cm - 14 1/2cm 15cm and finally 21cm that's where i cut mine and i then cut at 13 cms.

Now you need to cut your papers slightly smaller to fit inside your scored lines as so
Are you with me so far lol, i hope you are now you can start sticking your chosen papers and add the note pad to the inside
I then add the Ribbon using double sided sticky tape you can then add you image to the front add your embellishments and your done.
The image is a digi stamp from Crafts and Me called The Little Mermaid HERE.

If's there is anything your not sure of please email me and i will try to explain it a little better.
