25 Days of Gift Ideas: Notepad Folio

This project uses half of a 2 pocket folder (no prongs) and a small notepad from an office supply store.  

To decorate the front, I used the CTMH Florentine Paper Pack (X7153B), Sparkle Flourishes (Z1708) and cream organdy ribbon.  The focal image was stamped with the Quick Cards - Butterfly (A1120) in Twilight and Creme Brulée Inks using the rock n roll technique (stamping in the lighter color, then rolling the edges of the stamp in the darker color).

"Love as delicate as a butterflies wings; as strong as the circle of life"

You'll cut the folder in half at the seam, giving you two pieces to work with.  You'll trim each piece down to 10 3/4" x 8 1/4".  Rotate so the pocket is on the left and score at 5 1/4" and 5 1/2".  With one folder, you can make two folios (one folio will have a right side pocket, one will have a left side pocket).

Use glue dots or red tape to adhere the notepad on the opposite side of the pocket.  You can use a coordinating strip of paper to embellish the notepad.
