3 x 5 Notebooks

I made these cute little 3 x 5 notebooks to sell at my Stampin Up! booth at a Small Business Women's Expo, and also to show people what else can be made with stamps other than cards. They were a huge hit, especially with pre-teen girls. I only charged $3.00 a piece because they were all made with scraps and only took minutes to make. Inside each notebook are just 3 x 5 notecards. I used 1/2 of the individual package that the notecards came in, and I bought them in a package of 3 at Walmart to save even more money. I used chipboard for the front and back covers and bound everything together with my Bind-It-All.

These notebooks use Stampin Up!s retired set 'Delight in Life' and 'Girlfriends'.
Each notebook is covered with designer paper that has glitter or something shiny on it. I then added ribbon, flowers, gems, or hardware for embellishment.

These notebooks use Penny Blacks 'Critter Party' and the retired Stampin Up! set 'Totally Cool' and 'Girlfriend Accessories'.

The puppy images are both from Penny Black's 'Critter Party'.

The butterfly images are from Stampin Up!s current set 'Flight of the Butterfly'. To view this set, just click on the catalog image in the side bar.

The owl image is from Inkadinkado's 'Birds Galore'.
So if your looking for some stocking stuffers, or some quick and easy Christmas gifts, this is the project for you! The recipient will surely love them!
Till another day, Amy


  1. Those are really adorable! I can't believe you even bound them yourself. (I stumbled here because I'm searching on the phrase "stocking stuffers" -- always looking for new ideas.)

    I especially like the first dog one, and the owl at the end. Thanks for sharing!

  2. These are awesome Amy!!! I hope Santa brings me a Bind-it-All! You do such neat stuff with it!!

    Each one is unique and adorable!!! Great job!!

  3. Fantastic Amy, I absolutely love your little note books, such a great idea and as you say, perfect for stocking fillers. They're so bright and funky and just the kind of thing teenage girls would love, I agree. Chris :)
