These little note pads come together in just a few minutes and will use up some of those pretty scraps of paper and ribbon you’ve not been able to throw away. 🙂
Start with some chipboard coasters – mine are 3 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches with rounded corners. You can pick them up in the scrapbook section of your local craft store. Or cut your own from thin chipboard and round the corners – or not, whatever tickles your fancy. 🙂
I adhered patterned paper to the coasters and trimmed around the rounded corners. Then I sponged the edges with a coordinating ink color.
I picked up the hinge clips at Hobby Lobby in the scrapbook section during a 50% off sale, but they are probably available at your local office supply store as well. I glued them with a strong craft glue to the coaster with the top off the edge. I thought that by doing that you could use the tiny hole in the clip to hang the note pad from a pin on a cork board or a hook on a peg board. You could also add some magnets to the back and hang it on your fridge. Then I tied a small piece of ribbon to the clip. I finished them off with tiny buttons on the bottom right corner.
The tiny note paper is actually 3 x 5 inch index cards trimmed to 2 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches. I put about 20 pieces in each clip.
These were so fun to make! The color combinations are endless – you can make them to match any craft room, kitchen, office, or dorm room. They would make a great little thinking of you gift…perfect to jot down those little things you don’t want to forget. 🙂
