How to make a DIY Memo Pad Holder

How to Make a DIY Memo Pad Holder…

I’m a list maker.

I make lists for things to do, groceries to buy, photos to edit, ideas, gardening…

I’m actually using the “Choose Joy”  Memo Pad Holder as I sit and write this post.

The Choose Joy Memo Pad Holder with its sweet florals reminds me of everything summer.

And speaking of summer…it’s going to be a busy one.  (which means more lists)

How to make a DIY Memo Pad Holder…

  • Cut cardstock to measure 8 ¼” x 10 ½”.
  • Score the cardstock at 5 1/8″ and 5 3/8″

  • Cut a 5″ x 2 ½” piece of decorative scrapbook paper to go around the top of the memo pad.
  • Place the paper, design side up, into the end of the Xyron 3″ Sticker Maker* and pull the paper through.  Rub the protective covering and peel back to expose sticker.
  • I use the XYRON Adhesive Eraser* to remove any extra adhesive from the edges.

  • Align paper on the top of the memo pad band and wrap around to the back of the pad.

Did you know that you can use the Xyron Sticker Maker with ribbon?

  • Run ribbon though the Xyron 1.5 inch Sticker Maker*.
  • Center and adhere onto the middle of the scrapbook paper border.  Wrap extra ribbon around back of the memo pad.

  • Use the Xyron Mega Runner* to adhere the notepad onto the inside cover.
  • On the other side of the inside cover, create a pocket using coordinating paper and embellishments.
  • Add adhesive to three sides of the pocket and adhere inside cover.  Perfect place for receipts and additional lists.

Embellish front cover with an inspirational quote, ribbon and flowers.

(a cute picture of the kids would be nice too)
