Note Pad Tutorial using The Little Mermaid

Good evening folks i hope you all had a fab weekend and making the most of the sunshine.
Any way i have been asked if i would do a tutorial on my note pads that i made for our Crafts and Me blog hop, i though i would post it on here for as i've not done anything crafty for a few days now as my son has been in hospital!any way here it is.
You will need your A4 card scoring board nesties two sheets of 8X8 papers a ruler pencil and double sided tape, plus you image and some ribbon.

You now need to score your A4 card at the desired size i normally put my pad on the card and score according to what i want but i have measured it for you today I've scored at 5cm - 5 1/2cm - 14 1/2cm 15cm and finally 21cm that's where i cut mine and i then cut at 13 cms.

Now you need to cut your papers slightly smaller to fit inside your scored lines as so
Are you with me so far lol, i hope you are now you can start sticking your chosen papers and add the note pad to the inside
I then add the Ribbon using double sided sticky tape you can then add you image to the front add your embellishments and your done.
The image is a digi stamp from Crafts and Me called The Little Mermaid HERE. Teresa also stocks the pearls HERE

If's there is anything your not sure of please email me and i will try to explain it a little better.

I hope you have as much fun as i do making these note pads i gave one to my daughter in law one at the weekend and she loved her's.

Thanks for stopping by and dont forget you still have time to join our blog hop.
