Butterfly Bijou Covered Notepad

The project for today is perfect when you want to give someone “just a little something”. To make the project, just cover a small notepad with cardstock and the beautiful Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper then add a few embellishments.  Use it to give as a thank you, a thinking of you or a just because small gift.  While preparing the materials for the small notepad, cut cardstock and designer series paper to make an accompanying 3″x3″ card.  Not only does the notepad make a great gift but it’s also perfect for craft fair projects.  

Butterfly Bijou

There are a variety of small notepads of various sizes available that you can cover.  The package for my project contains 3 composition book style notepads (size: 4-1/2″ x 3-1/4″) and were found at my local dollar store.  Three notepads for $1 is a great deal!  

Tips for covering a notepad:

Measure to confirm the length, width and depth for front, back and side of the notepad.  Cut cardstock to the size needed and add score lines for wrapping around the notepad. (for the 4-1/2″ x 3-1/4″ notepad, I cut the cardstock 4-5/8″ x 7″, score at 3-3/8″, rotate and score again at 3-3/8″). Use the Detailed Trio Punch to round corners of the cardstock.  Do this before attaching the cardstock to the notepad.  Attach the cardstock to the notepad using a strong adhesive such as Tear & Tape or Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.  Next, cut the Butterfly Bijou paper and round the corners before adding to the cardstock cover.  Embellish with desired sentiment, ribbon and coordinating butterfly.  The sentiment on the sample above is from the Simply Citrus Card Kit.  The butterfly is stamped using Misty Moonlight, die cut using the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle and color added using Just Jade and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends.  Be creative and embellish your covered notepad with using an assortment of butterflies!

The Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper is available only during the Butterfly Bouquet promotion which ends May 3, 2021. With the limited time offer for the designer series paper, it is while supply last.  The Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper coordinates with the Butterfly Brilliance Collection that includes not just the designer series paper but the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle and Natural Touch Specialty Paper.  Both the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle and the Natural Touch Specialty Paper are early released products from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.  Be sure to order the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper before the promotion ends or it sells out.

Year-End Closeout Reminder!

Just popping in for a quick reminder that the Year-End Closeout is coming to an end soon! 

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!  My Christmas Day was lots of fun and full of laughter.  My two grandchildren provided hours of amusement.  The fun of watching them open their gifts and seeing their reactions was priceless.  Then in the evening, we were entertained with a musical concert.  Granddaughter Brooklynn (2 1/2) was lead singer, grandson Alex (10) played cardboard drums and along with his mom, Karen, were backup singers.  It was definitely a perfect way to end the day!  

The Year-End Closeout from Stampin’ Up! deadline is approaching.  The last day to order products from the 2019 Holiday Catalog is January 2, 2020.  

Click here to check out the Year-End Closeout Products and the Discounted Product offerings.  You’ll want to place your orders sooner rather than later as products are likely to sell-out closer to the ordering deadline.  Plus if any of your favorite stamp sets is retiring, be sure grab it now.

Additionally: The Host Code for December is X9EWHRMR:  please use Host Code only if your order is less than $150.  If your order exceeds $150, you will receive the host rewards!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the remainder of your holiday week!

 

Beautiful Christmas Rose

Happy Friday everyone!  Hopefully you survived Halloween.  It was a quiet evening at our house.  Our neighborhood doesn’t have trick or treaters so I got cozy and enjoyed a Hallmark Christmas movie.  Now, I’m definitely in the mood for Christmas!  In my last post, you were able to see components of the new Christmastime Is Here Product Suite.  Today my project, a beautiful Christmas Rose, uses products from the suite.  The beautiful Christmas Rose is cut  from the Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Best of all, no fussy cutting required as the Roses Dies match the large rose in the designer series paper.  This simple card design is to highlight the Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper and show that you can create “wow” looking cards using just the paper, a stamped sentiment and a couple embellishments.  

Christmas Rose

The Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper is gorgeous with gold foil accents.  Be sure to place your order for your favorite products from the Christmastime Is Here product suite soon.  You’ll want to use the products not just for Christmas but year round.  To order this exclusive, limited-time suite, visit my store to select your products.  If you prefer, email me if you need assistance placing your order.  Just a reminder, don’t delay.  This is only available while supplies last.

Have a great weekend!  Check back on Monday for another project idea.  Until then, happy crafting…
