I had a fabulous time on my Facebook Live this morning demonstrating how to make a Mini Stationery Set, and I wanted to share the instructions here with you today. This is such a lovely little project, perfect for giving as a gift or for selling at craft fairs, which are starting up again now!
These sets contain a notepad, a set of sticky notes and a pen, all presented in one of the Stampin’ Up! acetate card boxes. I used to sell these sets for about £5 in the craft fairs, but it depends on what your materials cost you really. The sticky notes alone used to be a great seller, and are so quick and easy to make. These also make lovely table gifts or ‘stocking fillers’.
I have used the Stampin’ Up! Sweet as a Peach suite for this project today, I think this bundle is AMAZING value at just £34 for the stamps and the dies. Think how many wonderful creations you could make with this. In fact, the whole suite including the papers and some cute mini jam jars is just £54, and you could get the whole suite for FREE if you sign up and join my team before the end of May.
To make the sticky notes ‘book’ you will need a piece of cardstock measuring 6 5/8″ x 3 1/4″. Score this on the long side at 3 1/8″ and 3 1/2″. This is the basic cover for your notes to be stuck in to. For the card mat, cut a piece to 3 1/16″ x 2 15/16″ and for the layer, cut a piece of Basic White cardstock to 2 7/8″ x 2 3/4″. This can then be decorated how you like. I keep mine fairly simple normally.
During the Facebook Live I switched up the colours a little, adding some Balmy Blue to the Pear Pizzazz and Pale Papaya that I had used in my first sample I quite like the contrast in colours and the added freshness that the light blue brings.
The notepad is made using a piece of cardstock 10.5cm (or however wide your notebook is!!) by 21cm, approximately. Really you just need to make sure it is long enough to cover the front of the notepad, bend over the top and then have a flap at the back. Score it on the long side at 1 1/4″ and 1 7/16″, although these may need to change depending on how thick your notebook is. Mine was 3/16″ wide, and they were purchased from The Range, here in the UK, you get 4 for a £1.
The coloured card mat is 10cm x 14.5cm. The patterned paper is 9.5cm x 6cm and the white piece is 10.5cm x 9.5cm. To see how I put them all together why not have a watch of my video over on YouTube.
I do hope that you have a go at making a Mini Stationery Set for yourself, or as a gift to give away or sell at craft fairs. They are such lovely little projects and a fabulous way to spend an hour or two.
