A lot of people are searching for homemade Christmas presents or something that they can give to neighbors, teachers, etc. that they made that is useful and meaningful. Bridget G. in our group presented this craft. We made this craft at our MOPS meeting Monday morning and all the moms loved it. It was really easy and every person ended up with one that was cute. I made two and then had a few stickers leftover to use my own stash to make another two. I don’t have a huge scrapbooking stash and just used what I had on hand.
1 notepad – 3″x5″ (or simply make the backing 1″ wider and 5″ taller than the notepad you have on hand)
1 piece of thin cardboard, 4.5″x9.5″ (made from a cereal box)
1 piece of scrapbook or any pretty paper, 4.5″x9.5″
1 accent paper
1-3 accent stickers, ribbons, etc.
roll of magnetic tacky tape like here (fun to have on hand with kids, too)
Zots or photograph stickers or some kind of double-sided sticker
optional: glitter, added magnets, scissors with different shapes (aka Crazy scissors), ribbon, etc.
2. At this point, I like to lay everything out to how I want to put it and then glue it.
4. Use the zots or other double-sided stickers to adhere to the back of the notepad. I put them in the upper left and upper right. Try not to touch the stickers, but put the notepad directly on one side and them remove the backing. This way the oils from your hands will stay off the sticker.
Here are some others I made.
