Post It note book

Cut thin cardboard from a cereal box or something similar. You will need (2) 3 1/4" squares and (1) 3 1/4" x 3/8" strip.
Cut cover DP (script by Karen Foster) to 4 1/2" x 8 1/2".
Cut liner DP (Daisy D's) 3" x 6 3/4".
On back of cover paper, score or draw lines 3/4" in from each short end.
Score or draw a line 5/8" from edges on both long sides.
Affix the cardboard as shown in the first photo lining it up with the score/pencil lines. I did the squares on each end and then centered the center binding strip.
Notch and trim corners as shown in photo 1.
Fold, glue and press long flaps in to place. Repeat with the end flaps.
Glue liner paper in place, gently fold and score cover.
Apply glue to the back of sticky notepad and attach to inside back cover.
Decorate and embellish cover as desired.


  1. Ugh I can't stand you woman! I love your artsy work! Hopefully some of your awsomeness rubs off on me after visiting your blog! I'm too stuck on the "norm"...but hey, I'm not complaining! LOL!

  2. Oh, Shelly..this tutorial is wonderful. I couple of weeks ago I got a smokin' deal on post-it notes. I got 120 note pads for $6. So I really needed some fabulous ways to use them and this will be one for sure! Thanks, Laura

  3. Just found this tutorial on your blog - Great project Shelly!
