Decoration of stick it note pads *Tutorial*

Hello dear friends! Its Evgenia Petzer with you today and I will show you how to make the covers for the sticker pad notes. The covers are long-lasting, as once the notes are finished you can simply attach the new block on the same place.

One cover I have decorated using the paper and another one is with fabric covering.

Here is the result:

stick_notes_pad_petzer_together

The one for the boy uses the paper:stick_notes_pad_boy_petzer

some close ups:

and the girl’s one is made out of fabricstick_notes_pad_girl_petzer

some close ups:

stick_notes_pad_girl_petzer_det1 stick_notes_pad_girl_petzer_det2

So lets start: Thats basically  what we will need (if you decide to go just with the paper decorations)

MK_pad - 1

I am not providing the certain measurements here as your sticky blocks may vary… I cut the piece of the thick yardstick (or the watercolour paper as I am using here) the width is about 5 mm bigger than the block itself.

MK_pad - 4

after you score it, you cut the extra length off and here is what you will need to get.

MK_pad - 5

The block inside looks like this.

MK_pad - 6

for the fabric covering, we do it slightly different, I use the cardboard for it, to make it even firmer. The larger rectangular are slightly bigger then the block itself (add about 2 mm for each!!! side), where as the inner, thin part is thinner than the block’s part (to make the cover open nicely and smoothly)

MK_pad - 7

Than we need to attach these three parts to the fleece material (I actually buy the fleece throughs from the IKEA and use them for these type of things)

MK_pad - 8

Than you cut all the extra length away and get this:

MK_pad - 9

then you need to pick the fabric, I prefer cotton one and the designs that match my papers that I will use fro the decoration,

MK_pad - 10

Using the glue, you adhere the fabric inside (start from two opposite sides, than another 2 opposite sides, that will make the fabric lay straight and nice)

MK_pad - 11

MK_pad - 12

the corners of the fabric you can cut as shown, that will help you to get the corners look more nicer.

MK_pad - 13

 

after bending the corners inside, it will look like this:

MK_pad - 14

MK_pad - 15

This time I also will put some ribbons to get the more appealing look, the ribbons you attach with the glue and then can also add some sticky tape.

MK_pad - 16

Now we will need to cover the inner part also with the same fabric

MK_pad - 17

here is what we get, you can help yourself with the scoring pen for those two lines.

MK_pad - 18

than you put some glue on the stick note pad and adhere it inside of this cover.

MK_pad - 19

Now the nicest part begins- decoration! I pick the paper for the covering.

MK_pad - 20

using the wet glue you adhere it inside.

MK_pad - 21

*****

with the paper decoration for the boys’ sample its even easier… I picked two papers for the outside decor and you need to adhere it as shown.

MK_pad - 22

then you just need to decorate your projects as you wish, I always start by picking the main element.

MK_pad - 24Once again- here is the outcome result!

stick_notes_pad_petzer_together

Hope that you have enjoyed this little tutorial and these paper pads can become small nice gifts even for the teachers, if you go with more neutral decor theme.

 

I have used the paper pad of The Vintage Baby Collection

and the sheet with hot air baloons (New Arrival) for the fussy cutting:

 

 

Have a lovely day, 

A Girl’s Diary

Good morning, Maja Design friends, welcome to the blog today :)

With November coming to an end, I think it’s time to think of Christmas presents, especially if you intend making them yourselves. And so today I have a girly diary to share.

mddor

As the little lady, who will be writing her secrets in this notebook, likes purples, I chose to work with the Ska Vi Ta En Fika? collection with a bit of the Vintage Spring Basics set, which offered both cold and warm shades of purple, paired with browns and greens too. And so I adapted the same palette for the diary. I layered some papers on the front cover:

mddor2

…added a ribbon bow and a butterfly charm on the wire:

mddor1

…and decorated the front with a stamped and hand-coloured image:

mddor3

On the inner cover, I added the girl’s monogram in a decorative heart on the background of the butterfly and plaid patterns:

mddor4

There’s also a bonus stamped image at the back of the diary:

mddor5

…and a little envelope to put in special secrets :)

mddor6

I hope the girl would like her secret diary :)

And here’s what I used to make it:

Papers: Ska Vi Ta En Fika?: Nybakat, Chaite, Mandelkaka, Lejas café; Vintage Spring Basics: 11th of April BS, 9th of April BS. Other: stamps: Magnolia, Basic Grey; ribbon, twine: Rayher, charm, plate: my stash.

Have you started making your Christmas gifts yet?

Hi there! Still in the middle of November, but I am in the Christmas mood. When it comes to cardmaking, that is. Who could resist with the gorgeous papers from I wish.

I-wish-P

Today I will show you a giftbag that I have decorated.

IMG_5954

I have coloured the sweet image from Magnolia called Holly Wreath Tilda, with Distress Inks re-inkers, in the same colours as the I wish papers I have used. I love these warm nostalgic colours. The Merry Christmas text is also from Magnolia. The postmark stamps around the image are from Stempelglede.

Under you see the back of the bag.

The texts on the tags (Magnolia).

You get a better view on the different layers on the picture under.

Here is the list of the paper used:

Thank you so much for visiting the blog today!
