How to Create a Matchbook Notepad
by Maggie Lamarre, Creative Team Member
I had just finished a matchbook for my daughter back to school, I started thinking I can use the same principles to create a note pad for my purse. Since I star school myself the theme fits perfectly..
Supplies used: Algebra, History, Biology, English, papers: School bound kit at dragonflairestudios.com; Stamps Art Warehouse; Brads Karen Foster; Silk flowers; Cardstock: Paper Company; Tim Holtz Distress ink; Paper piercer; Plain paper
Let’s begin to create this match book you can use 8.5x11 or 12x12 cardstock.
- Cut the card stock 3.5x12, fold 1 inch down the bottom, then the top flap fold in to the bottom flap to create the top.
- Use a bone folder to create a sharp crease or butter knife.
- Stamp both side of the cardstock then adhere your paper.
- Cut digital paper to adhere to the top, Ink the edges if desired with distress ink.
- Attached the flower and embellishments on the digital paper then adhere to the top of the cardstock.
- Next step: Cut plain paper 1 inch smaller than the matchbook,
- use paper piercer and create 2 holes on the bottom to attached the papers to the bottom of the matchbook,
- secure with brads or ribbons.
Voila you are done!
Have fun, create your ART
