Back to School with Connie!

Hi, Connie here with a useful gift idea for the school year. 

I created with scrap pieces of pattern paper from the Catalina Island, Farm House and Anchor Aweigh Collections by Quick Quotes. If you have a 3" X 12" scrap piece, you have enough paper to embellish a notepad for yourself or a special teacher.

To get this size of notepad, go to an office supply house and purchase a set of 12 legal size pads and ask them to cut them in thirds. Most stores will do the cuts at no charge. You will end up with lots of notepads!!! Add the pattern paper to the back of the pad with a strong adhesive.

Make a little wrap around flap, for the top of the notepad, and decorate using stickers, pearls, flowers or die cuts. Teachers will love them!! They look so pretty on a desk or by the phone.

Quick Quotes Supplies:
Catalina Island Collection
Farm House Collection
Anchors Aweigh Collection.
PowderPuff Chalk Inks: Caribbean BluePeach Tree and Seafoam

Other Supplies:
Legal Size Note Pads (Cut in Thirds)
Strong Adhesive
