Keep this beautiful little book that holds Post It Notes handy when you need it. I will carry this one in my purse.
1 12×12 piece of double sided paper
Tape Runner Gun or adhesive of your choice
Piece of chip board or Grunge Board
Small embellishments of your choice
Cut out your patte paper using the templates.
Score your ends (I use a score board) and fold over using a bone folder for crisp edges.
Adhere your chip board pieces to the inside of your cover piece. Make sure the outer edges just touch the fold line. Do not go over it, then take the thinner middle piece and place between the 2 larger pieces making sure there is a small gap between all 3 pieces as shown.
Starting with your longer flaps, adhere them to your chipboard. Then take your smaller end flaps and do the same. I used a tape runner, but you can use glue or 2 way tape.
If you would like to make the bow tie into the outside of the spine as shown in the top photo then adhere your ribbon(s)
over the inside of the spine.
If you would like to close your cover with a bow tie, then cut your ribbon in half and adhere to both ends of the cover. I used glue to tack the pieces down for stability.
Take your liner and adhere it over the ribbon and into the inside of your cover
Adhere a 3×3 Post it Notes pack to the back side of your booklet. You are now ready to decorate it.
Here is another one I did for Zva Creative. This one has the tie closure. I used 2 ribbons, one silk the other sheer.March 20, 2012 at 12:14 am #161950

Well, if you print the template for the cover and liner on letter size paper, it comes out a little bit larger, but it will still work. So you can print it up and use it as a template. No need for measuring except you may have to make the chip board pieces a little bigger as well. But that would be easy. Just measure from your template.March 20, 2012 at 1:11 pm #161963
