Hello crafty buddies! I hope you are all well and have had a great week so far. I have been a little quiet of late, because I have been fascinated by some You Tube videos - I know, that's not different - well, no, but what I have been watching is different from the usual card making videos that I normally watch (although I have still watched them too). No, my friends, I have been fascinated by something new - to me - that is 'Pocket Letters'.
Now, one of the videos (can't remember which, I watched so many) whereby the person showed how to make mini notebooks and I fell in love with the cuteness of them. They are tiny 2.5"x 3.5" notebooks and were so easy, that I had to have a go! I made six, and I will show you them and then of course tell you how they were made.
First, I will just show you the one, close up, and then all six together.
Aren't they adorable? The person who made them on YT used patterned paper, but I wanted to 'glam them up' a bit and used glitter card. They can also be adorned with embellishments!
First, you take a piece of card-stock or patterned paper which you cut to 5"x 3.5" and fold in half (I also rounded each corner, but that part is optional).
Next, you take some copy paper and cut to 4.75"x 3.25". I used eight, which, when folded in half, gives sixteen pages (again, I rounded the corners).
Next, gather them all together neatly, with the cover on the bottom, hold all securely with a couple of paper grips and staple with two staples, one at the top and one at the bottom of the 'spine', as they aren't very thick, they will go through easily.
Remove the clips and fold, et voilà! Now decorate as required. They are ideal to keep in a handbag/purse for quick notes!
Have a wonderful weekend my friends!
