Instructions added in post #5

I recently bought a cute handmade notebook and thought it would make a great gift, so got busy figuring out how to make one myself. I just made this one today, and embellished it with Jolee's stickers. The others pictured I made and gave to the girls at work for Christmas. I did not use my Cricut except for some circles, but just think of how creative it could get with Cricut cuts!
They are super easy to make.

I took a stab at writing the instructions - hope they make sense!
Supplies:
2 pieces cardstock (1 needs to be 12 x 12)
1 printed paper ( or more if you want different designs, like my orchid one)
Velcro fastener
Base of book:
On a 12” X 12” piece of cardstock, score across the page at 3 7/8” from the bottom
From top to bottom, score at 3”, 3 3/8”, 8 ½”, and 8 7/8”
Attach printed paper on both end sections above bottom score line
Fold up bottom at score line. Secure with adhesive at left and right edge only to form a pocket. (I used Terrifically Tacky Tape here)
Attach printed paper on left and right sections of pocket. Insert back of paper pad into center of pocket.
Front of book:
Cut 3 tags 4 ½” x 2 1/2 “ from cardstock. Add printed paper.
Fold book closed. Adhere printed paper to right flap only.
Attach tags to left flap.
Attach Velcro fastener pieces to middle tag and right flap.( I suggest having the paper pad inserted before attaching the Velcro for accurate placement.)
Embellish as desired.

Oops - didn't think to add that! I used 5"x8" notebooks from Office Depot. I bought the package of 12 and I know it was under $10, just don't remember the exact price.

I love these notebooks. I will try my luck at making one and if it goes well I will make more for the ladies at my Bible study. I think I will add a strip of decorative paper to the top of the notepad too. These are really great looking. I'm sure your friends have liked them. Thanks for sharing.
