For this project you’ll need:


First I used the Just a Note border & the cute Smirk girls peel & stick stamps to make a cute tag for the front of my mini notebooks.  I just stamped them onto white card stock, punched them out with a circle punch & then colored them with some Prismacolors.


Then I used some washi tape to decorate the front of the notebook & the little pen. Washi tape is one of my favorite crafty tools.  Love it! ;)


Then I stuck my cute tag I had made with my PSA Essentials peel & stick stamps with some glue dots. That’s it! So cute & easy! :)


Here’s a view of the inside….lots of fun sticky notes & paper to write on, too! These would be great in an Easter basket or as a quick gift for a friend or maybe even one for YOU! ;)
