Christmas Memo Pad

While at Staples this weekend, I found these cut little mini legal pads.  I remembered seeing a video of someone covering them to make cute teacher gifts.  I decided to give it a try.
 I gathered up my supplies.  I used Baked Brown Sugar, Cherry Cobbler, and Gumball Green Ink.  The papers are Gumball Green, Whisper White, and Seasons of Style DSP Stack.  I used the Holiday Ornament Framelits and Ornament Keepsakes Stamp Set with my Big Shot.  Some Whisper White Bakers Twine, Snail Adhesive, Mini Glue Dots and Stampin' Dimensionals rounded it out.
 I cut my papers to size, 3 1/2 inches wide.  The Gumball Green I left at 11 inches.  The Seasons of Style, I trimmed to 2 inches long.  (I ended up cutting some of the Gumball Green from the bottom of the back.)
 I lined up the Gumball Green and adhered it to the font page of the mini legal pad and wrapped it all the way around the back.
 I stamped the smaller ornaments and cut them out with the big shot and framelits.

 I tied small bows with the bakers twine and used mini glue dots to attach them.  I cut some bakers twine to attach to the backs of the ornaments and attached them with glue dots.  Then I added Stampin' Dimensionals to the backs.
 I ran a line of Snail adhesive across the top of the pad to attach the strings to hold them in place.
 I adhered the Seasons of Style DSPS piece to the top and wrapped it around to the back.
 I thought it needed something else so I pulled out my Christmas Messages Stamp Set and used the Oh What Fun sentiment.
I love the way it turned out.
