Day 10The Cookie Cutter Creature Notebook with the Quilt Christmas Paper

A fun co-worker gift, a stocking stuffer, or something for your own handbag.

You'll need 8 ½ x 11 cardstock – score at 5 ¼ and 5 ¾, burnish your folds, I used Garden Green to match the Quilted Christmas and Christmas Around the World Paper. 

Cover panels:  solid 4 ¾ x 1 ½ - I used real red.

The designer paper is 6 x 4 ½ cut into 2 pieces 4 ½ x 1 and 4 ½ x 5.  Adhere the solid panels to front of folder.  I love the Quilted Christmas paper and I think this paper can be used well beyond Christmas! You’ll see I adjust the size of the designer paper a little for the quilt patterns.

Stamp the cookie cutter creature (the gingerbread man) and punch him out. Stamp the “season of cheer” and punch out with the oval punch.To get the gingerbread man to “hold” the greeting, chop off his head and arms and legs.

Put a little bit of glue at his neck and adhere to the back of the greeting, do the same with the arms and legs. Put the gingerbread man on the front of the notebook.

Small piece of cardstock for the top panel of the lined paper pad is 2 x 5 1/8
Score on the short side at 1 and 1 ¼.  Adhere the top panel to the notebook to make it look pretty.  Adhere the pad to the inside panel with strong glue (not snail).

The Inside Pocket –if you wish
6 ¼ x 4
Score at ½, ¾ on all 3 sides
Cut out the 2 corners
Fold and burnish the edges.  Nice crisp folds J
Fold the bottom up and use glue dots to secure corners.
Adhere the panel (size here) to front of the pocket.
Include a pen or pencil or post it note.

Happy stamping, MaryKate
