Lil’ Critter Notes


Today we are sharing a playful, covered notepad. A sheet of Kraft Like a Rockstar cardstock was trimmed down to size, stamped with the woodgrain background from the Background Basics 1 stamp set, scored, and adhere to create a cover for a small notepad.

Next we stamped a fun sentiment using the solid letters in the Alpha Duo set, and the “lil’ critter” from Party Elements: Critters set. It’s super easy to create custom sentiments with the variety of sets in the Critter Collection.

The fox was die cut, stamped, colored in with Copic Trio marker sets, and then adhered to the notepad. A bit of twill ribbon was added to keep the notebook cover neatly in place.

For a little added fun we found these adorable set of wooden colored pencils.  We bundled the set with raffia ribbon and created a matching tag using the Tags 1 die cut and Taglines: Critter stamp set.

Pair them together and you have a coordinating notepad and pencil set. Don’t you think these would make great party favors to give out for a Woodlands themed Critter Party?
