Over the past year I’ve gotten a lot of requests for personalized notepads, which I always thought I’d need to have done at a print shop, so I never offered them. But a few weeks ago I learned from the very kind and generous Kelli at The Hootie Coo Card Company that I could make them myself (easily!) so I began offering them on my website.
They’ve been selling pretty well, and today I thought I’d photograph the process and put together a little tutorial. So here’s what I do…
First I cut an 8.5″ x 11″ chipboard sheet into fourths for the backs of the notepads (my notepads measure 4.25″ x 5.5″).
Then I print the design 4-per-page on 24-lb 8.5″ x 11″ paper and cut those into fourths.Next I stack 40 sheets of paper on top of each chipboard sheet and top each notepad with a blank page (so the top page doesn’t get messed up).
