These notepads were fun and easy to make, and also inexpensive.  My kids have used them for party favors and in place of birthday treats at school.  The kids love them!

Directions: Cut your paper 3″ x 6 1/4″.  Score 3″ from each end and fold.  This gives you a 1/4″ in the center for the height of your inner paper.  Decorate the outside of the notepad however you wish.  Use double stick tape to adhere a post-it pad on the inside and your done!  If you plan to use eyelets like I did, I would recommend using the Crop-a-Dile.  It sets beautifully and will not leave any sharp edges.  I used CTMH papers: Rough ‘N Tumble, More to Adore, Good Times, Whoops-A-Daisy, and Let’s Get Together.  Stamps used were also CTMH: Little Boys, Adorable, Star Struck, Flutter, Fun Times, and Love in Bloom.

You must have the Cherish book by CTMH in order to be able to use this template because the book has your instructions.  If you do not have it yet, it is definately a great investment and I will be posting more templates for you to use.  You can purchase the book from me, through my website, or through your local consultant.
