five minute notepad transformation

Life is too short to use a notepad that's not cute, don't you think? I have all sorts and types of random notepads lying around, and I bet you do as well. I grabbed this one to work with, but have also used spiral bound notebooks and school composition books with success.


I prefer to use my Elmer's glue sticks when working on a project like this one. After applying the glue to the back of my cardstock, I can place it on the cover and still have a few seconds to move it around until it's pretty close to a perfect fit. With a dry adhesive, I can't do that. I then flip the cover over and trim away any excess paper.


Pretty amazing how some pretty paper and cute embellishments can transform a notepad in five minutes. Makes that To Do list a little less intimidating, doesn't it?
