I love an idea that allows me to make gifts and use up products I already have in my stash. Granted, I used a brand new paper pack on these guys but I could hardly resist. I mean, the Fashionista set is so pretty!
Also, I cannot tell you how many times you guys have asked me to make one of these and do it the way I would do it. I did not make mine with a removable legal pad, I made it permanent and that may not be a great idea for some but you can always tear out the paper and add a new pad onto the existing cardboard left behind. I really wanted the stability.
You can make it where you can take the legal pad out and replace it if you would like for me to show you how I would do that, let me know.
Legal Pad- 8 1/8 x 5 inches, I got mine at Dollar General.
Legal pad cardboard base- 8 1/8 x 6 inches.
Cardstock to cover the base is 7 x 9 inches.
Spine and Cover Cardstock piece is 7x 8 1/8 inches, scored on the 7 inch side at 1/2 an inch, 1 1/2 inch and 2 inches.
Mat for the cover is 4 3/4 x 7 3/4 inches.
Pocket Cardstock is 6 x 4 inches scored at 1/2 inch on three sides.
Pocket Mat is 4 3/4 x 3 1/4 inches.
Legal Pad Flap is 5 x 9 inches.
Legal Pad Flap Mat is 4 3/4 x 7 3/4 inches.
Cardboard from my stash
