Cookie Cutters:  Not Just For Cookies Anymore! Post # 20: 

Cookie Shaped Note Pad

Make a one of a kind note pad using a cookie cutter as a template.  This is a great craft for kids and a great rainy day activity.  Vary the size of the cutter to make a purse sized to a full sided notepad.  This project can be personalized for recipient or season.  For example, add a glitter heart to make a plain notepad Valentine worthy or use a plain paperbag to make a recycled notepad.

Materials

  • Base material for front & back of note pad: craft foam, heavy cardstock, fabric, brown paper bag, etc.
  • Embellishments, buttons, craft foam scraps, etc.
  • Plain paper or large index cards

Also needed

  • Scissors
  • White glue
  • Cotton swab or paint brush
  • Cookie cutters

Instructions

Photo 1: Assemble supplies. First consider the shape and size of the notepad you want to make and choose a cutter. A simple design would be the easiest to cut. Choose a base material for the front & back covers: reinforced fabric, craft foam, cardstock, etc.

Photo 2: Trace the cookie cutter on the base material and cut it out.

Photo 3: Next cut paper for the pages and a piece of thick cardboard (or another piece of foam, etc.) for the back cover all in the same shape as the front.
