Sharing the Joy: Weekend Crafting

This is a cute craft to re-purpose those Christmas cards and homework papers and they would make great stocking stuffers or filler for a teacher gift basket, etc.

This tutorial was featured on Hope Studios.  For images of the entire project, click HERE.

Christmas Card Note Pads

Old Christmas Cards (or how about those junk mail postcards?)
Homework pages that are blank on one side
Scissors or paper cutter

Cut out the portion of the card you'd like to showcase then fold the inside cover up about 1/2 inch. You will then need to trim some of the "cover" accordingly, so that it will tuck neatly into the fold.

Cut your homework papers about 1/4 inches smaller than the cover in width and length. Here, the measurement is 3 1/2 x 4 inches. 20 papers per cover is about right.

Insert the papers into the cover and staple near the bottom of the fold.

Tuck the cover into the fold (trim as necessary to let it lay flat) and you're finished! Recycle, Re purpose, Reuse...

Always in spirit....
