My essentials to jot down ideas.  A must have on me at all times.  And it gave birth to these…a place for my ideas, small enough to fit in my purse, and pretty ohh gold and chic!
Tools you will need.  Paper trimmer and the awl has been of great tools to my craft addition.  Highly recommend you add this to your craft stash…I promise you won’t regret it!
1. I bought this gorgeous Gold foil card stock at Michael’s.  It was just 0.79 cents for a 12″ x 12″ square card stock.  Cut the card stock 8.5″ x 3″.  Cut your filler paper 1/2 inch smaller —> 8″ x 2.5″.
Time to use the awl to puncture two holes in the center to sew your booklets together.  Each booklet contains about 3-4 sheets.
2. Sew your booklets together and make sure you knot it well.  Use your binder clippers and clip the booklets after you sew the booklets together.  Glue the bind and let it dry for about 15-30 mins.
3. Take your pattern card stock and glue the booklets to the inside of the card stock bind.
4.  Clip the booklets and filler paper together and let it dry overnight…and there you have it..personal pattern mini notebooks!!
ENJOY making these!
