I realize that many people don't use notepads anymore,
but I am a list maker - and love having little notepads handy at all times.
I always have scraps of card-stock and plain paper that is leftover from bigger projects,
as well as a never ending supply of hand decorated paper.
So I thought I would share how to make these matchbook notepads.
Gather scraps of notepaper, card-stock and decorated paper.
Cut the pieces to size and then glue
the decorated paper to the card-stock.
Fold the decorated card-stock so that it has a small flap at the bottom and
insert the stack of notepaper.
Staple the pages and the folded flap similar to a matchbook cover.
Fold the top part over and tuck it under the stapled piece.
If it is too long, trim it a bit.
Once it is the the right size and tucked under the flap, crease the top.
If you don't have any decorated paper.... you can always use a piece out of a magazine.
When I make them I seem to end up with quite a stack of them.
But.... that isn't really a problem!
