Jr. Legal Pad Covers - Easy Gift Project Idea

With 3 different score lines on a 12 x 12 paper, you can fold this jr. legal pad cover and decorate it with your favorites Close To My Heart Paper!  These note pad covers were made with Lucky (Level 2 Paper Kit X7137B) and Sweetheart (Level 2 Paper Kit X7134B).  These make great teacher gifts, favors and door prizes.  

To complete these projects you will need the following CTMH supplies:

Sweetheart Cover
Sweetheart Level 2 Paper Packet (X7134B)
Irresistibles Dimensional Elements - Eclectic Alphabet
White Daisy Grosgrain 3/8" Ribbon (Z270)
Sparkles - Clear (Z1104)
White Daisy Just Blooms Paper Flowers Variety Pack (Z1300)
Cutting Knife (Z1252)
Black and Tulip Ink Pads (Z2105 & Z2166)

Lucky Cover (Score Pad)
Lucky Level 2 Paper Packet (X7137B)
Bingo Alphabet Stamp Set (D1478)
Twill Ribbon (retired - available for purchase)
Kraft Color-Ready Borders (Z1377)
Olive Card Stock (1245)
Desert Sand (Z2103) & Outdoor Denim (1275) Ink Pads
Cutting Knife (Z1252)
1"x1" (Y1000) & 4"x 4" (Y1008) Acrylic Blocks 

You can purchase any or all of these supplies from my consultant site: or through a catalog order by phone or email.  

Cover Folding Instructions:  

You will need one 12 x 12 piece of card stock for the base.  You will score at 5.75" and 6.25".  Rotate paper once and score at 8.5".  Fold at 8.5 and use a strong adhesive such as 1/4" redline tape at the ends and in the center of the two original scores.  Now fold at the two scores and you have your cover!  Cut two slits about 1/2 apart on the center 1/2" fold for a pen.  Grab your favorite B&T duo and cut and cover as desired!  Be sure to adhere the ribbon tie on before you mount the paper for best results.  I recommend the red line tape for this as well.
