Birthday Notepads

Our friend Janice is our best customer!! Last year she 'hired' us to make altered paint cans for her daughter's birthday party (sorry, I don't have a picture to share). This year, she asked for covered notepads. For the girl's note pads, the base is made out of shiny heavy cardstock and used DCWV Posies Glitter for the main patterned paper. They are then embellished with punched pieces, sizzix die cuts and bling. Also used was shrink material for the girl's initial in the lower right and corner. I used sizzix RoundABout die, then shrunk it and embossed with glitter.

For the boy's notepad, we wanted to keep it simple. A heavy brown cardstock with brown and light blue striped paper (I don't remember the manufacturer). Then punched circles, embossed with cuttlebug swiss dots, added buttons and made a shrink initial "S" as well.

Thanks for looking !
