Princess Party Prize – A Princess Notebook

What’s a Bridal Shower without some prizes for the guests?! I was inspired to make decorative notebooks after receiving one from a friend who recently made one at a Stampin’ Up party. I simply modified the idea to fit my princess party.

I purchased 8″x5″ notepads at my local office supply store and used the rubber stamping and scrapbooking supplies I already had at home to decorate it.

Supplies:

  • Dress rubber stamp from My Sentiments Exactly! W362
  • Blazing Red StazOn inkpad
  • 1 piece dark pink cardstock
  • 1 piece light pink cardstock
  • 1 piece white cardstock
  • 1 piece typing paper
  • 1 piece pink patterned paper
  • 2 pink brads
  • 1 clear / white medium gem
  • 2 feet pink ribbon ( I used sheer)
  • exacto / craft knife
  • hole punch and scissors
  • tape and puffy tape

Instructions:

  1. Cut dark pink paper to 10×8.  Cut a strip of light pink cardstock to 1×8 and adhere to dark pink so that 1/2 shows. This will now make your dark pink cardstock 10.5×8.
  2. Fold the dark pink cardstock at 5 1/8 and again at 5 3/8 (you may want to score it at these measurements so that it is easier to fold).  Your notepad should fit inside with a little extra on the right side.
  3. Trim the pink patterned paper to 4.25 x 7.25. Adhere to center of cover.
  4. Trim piece of light pink cardstock to 1.5 x 5 1/8. Adhere it to cover horizontally approximately 2.25 from the top.
  5. Create a slit on the light pink cardstock (and through every layer) using the craft knife about 1/4 from the right side allowing a place for the ribbon to feed through. Make a similar slit in the back cover. Feed through ribbon. Adhere ribbon to front and back cover using a clear tape.
  6. Trim white cardstock to 3.75 x 4.5. Stamp dress stamp in center of white cardstock using blazing red stazon inkpad. Dab stencil brush into blazing red stazon inkpad and color the edges of the white cardstock. Adhere to top of cover with puffy tape leaving about 0.5 border all around. Adhere clear gem at waistline of dress.
  7. In word processor print the word princess (I used Pristina font). Trim allowing space on the right and left to insert brads – approximately 2 3/4 x 3/4. Use stencil brush to add some color to the princess tag. Edge with light pink cardstock leaving 1/4 border all around. Punch hole in the left and right side centered vertically. Insert brads. Adhere to notepad cover using puffy tape centered under the dress.
  8. Trim a piece of pink printed paper to 3×5. Adhere to notepad covering the staples at the top. Excess paper should be on the back of the notepad. Tape the notepad to the inside of the cover.
  9. Tie ribbon in a bow which should tie the notepad closed.

Note: You could create a pocket inside the cover to allow the notepad to be changed out once it’s all used up. You would need to make a bigger cover to allow for taping the pocket to the back cover.
