Notepad Holders

I love the notepad holder made by Patty Bennett using SU’s office folders. Even though I own them. I am loath to cut them. I want to make over my office area and they are my starting point.

I decided to try and make them from our 8.5 x 11” cardstock.
I succeeded! This is the finished product!

I made the pink one with a retired Scrappin’ Kit. I have a friend who loves anything tropical so I made that one for her. On this one the left flap is the top flap. I wanted to use the Die cuts that came in that kit.

The butterfly notepad holder I trimmed away the excess paper so the wing would pop. It is on a layer of Barely Banana and Dusty Durango cut with the Circle Scissors Plus and the Scallop Circle #2 Bigz Die.

I trimmed the flap edges at an angle on this notepad holder. It’s not necessary I just wanted to see how it would look. I used the larger scallop on the Scallop Circle #2 Bigz Die and my Circle Cutter to create the flap decor on this notepad holder too. I want to make some with ribbon and bling soon. I see matching pens, post it note pads and paperclip bookmarks all coordinating in my future!

Kim, thanks for this tutorial! I made one using Patty's instructions with a non-SU! file folder and LOVE IT! I'm thinking about cutting a couple of horizontal slits in the spine so the can pop inside and hold a pen!

That's a great idea Trina!
