How to Cover a Jotter Sized Notebook

I love making gifts for customers, each month each customer receives a handmade card, and maybe even a little something extra! I used to send these out so they would arrive with your order, but I can’t keep up, so now, I have a posting day at the end of each month – if you have ordered recently and haven’t received anything from me, let me know! It might be that you have made a ‘No Contact’ order, in which case, you’ll need to log back into your Stampin’ Up! account and change your preferences, as I am unable to contact anyone who leaves a No Contact order – even if it is to say ‘Thanks!’

So, onto the post for today, I made these for the ladies that attended my March Techniques Class last week!

I am always writing lists, and so love a good notepad, even more when they are pretty!

They use the stamp set from my April Techniques class – Regarding Dahlias, for the stamped front cover. I have personalised each one with the attendees first initial using the Sophisticated Serifs! (LOVE!) And they are so easy to make!


I would suggest that you measure your notepads carefully and alter these measurements to fit.

The notepads I bought were Jotter Sized (aka: very random!). Measure the height and depth of your notepad and add an 1 1/2″ (3 cm) to find the length of cardstock you need and then take the width for the notepad for the width of cardstock.

My notebooks measure : 21 x 7 x 0.4 cm (8 5/16 x 2 13/16 x 1/8″)

and so my cover measures  24 x 7 cm (9 1/2 x 2 13/16)

Scored on the long side at 21.3 and 21.8 cm (8 3/8 and 8 9/16″)

The Whisper White layer for stamping measures 21.5 x 6.5 cm (2 9/16 x 8″)
