Spring Bird mini notebook


I made this notebook this morning for a gift to a wonderful lady who put together our Spring Fling event today. We made some wonderful Stampin Up cards and gift items and had a great time.

Here is a gift I made and surprised her with it!
I saw a video last night while blog hopping - and I saw this great idea at Kinder Stampo's blog. While my cover is totally different I took her base size measurements and went to work to crate my own early this morning.
The card board was cut at 4" x 5", the cs for the cover and the back cover is from SU! also cut to 4 x 5"
Then I cut a couple strip, punched bordered it glued it to the middle of the top cover - embossed a piece of white cs with a SU embossing folder and foam raised the two punch bird on the front - simple!

I cut the inner blank pages from printer paper also cut at 4 x 5.
Layers it altogether and I bound it with my CINCH.
My next one It'll take measurement of the pieces as I just quickly cut and it all worked out!
