Post It Note Pad Cover

So I took my
Perfectly Shaped Build a Book
Mini Scallop piece by
and sliced away!
I love using these pieces for mini albums!
They work perfectly for all sorts of little books!
But I also enjoy thinking outside my box
so I like to take my Build a Book pieces
and play around a bit
just to see what I can come up with
other than a mini album.
Today's Build a Book piece
delivers the cutest little note pad cover,
don't you think?!

The first photo shows how it looks without its band.
(I used a brown hairband... inexpensive and pretty too!)
Wouldn't this look adorable sitting on a desk?!
And the photo above shows the note pad
WITH the band in place.
Pop it into the purse and you are ready
to brag as well as take notes!  LOL
You will see below just how I trimmed my
Mini Scallop Piece
to create my note pad cover.
The cover folds around the top of the note pad
and down about halfway of the back.
Then I covered the back
completely with a 3x3 piece of
Chocolate Chip card stock.
Check back soon to see what I come up with
using the remaining pieces of my
Perfectly Shaped Build a Book pieces.

Ooh, what a sweet day when I find a blog that gives me a fabulous idea! This is one of those days, and your blog, my dear, has delivered. Love the minibook, and especially, of all things--the hairband idea. Wow. Wish I'd thought of that!
