Fun Fruity Notebooks

 

I’m back home and excited to get back to blogging. After weeks away, it’s time to get this crafty party back in business! With Valentine’s Day creeping up on us, I thought I’d share another cute favor project that is perfect for classroom gift giving. These little notebooks feature the Clear & Simple Stamps Fruit Applique Dies which I haven’t used in a while. Last year, I created THIS with these same dies and now it’s time to put them to use with a different sort of project.

These mini notebooks are easy to make with a few basic tools:

{1} Die cut fruit applique from paper and assemble one completely and die cut another with just the largest die shape to create the back.

{2} Create a die cut notebook by stacking 4 sheets of text weight paper, folding them in half  creating an eight page booklet then die cut all the sheets with about 1/4″ of the die hanging off the folded edge.

{2} Place the glue-side down on to the fruit applique covers

{3} Repeat and apply the glue side down to the back cover.

{4} Insert the rest of the notebook, open to the center fold and tie twine around the center to close.

When you’ve assembled your notebooks, you can package them up in a glassine bag with a cute tag stamped from the Perfect Harvest Fillers stamp set.

  1. Love this. They are so cute. I don’t use dies, but I bet I figure it out on my die cut machine. Thanks for sharing all your great ideas.
