Hand Stamped Writing Tablet

Hello Stampers ~

Today I am sharing with you a project that my attendee’s made at my annual Spring Retreat.  You will need: Cardstock, Paper Cutter, Simply Score (or use your score blade on your cutter) Fav Stamp Set, Designer Paper and border punch to embellish and Sticky Strip to hold it all together.  Now you can create this cute project…  great for teachers, friends, and more.

You’ll begin with an 8-1/2″ x 11″ sheet of cardstock (we used Island Indigo).  Trim 1/4″ off the 8-1/2″ side, bringing it down to 8-1/4″ x 11.  Score at 5-1/5″ then 5-3/4″.

To design the front we stamped the top with the “Flowering Flourishes” stamp set.  Then we used “Comfort Cafe” Designer Series Paper … embellished using Pool Party cardstock and the “Scallop Trim Border Punch”.

To create the pocket, start with a 5 x 4-1/4″ piece of cardstock (Pool Party).  With your Simply Score, you will score 1/4″ then at 1/2″ on 3 sides.  Trim out the corners where the score lines over lap.  Then fold cardstock at the score lines to create a pocket.  You will “sticky strip” the outer most scored fold.

You will use your sticky strip to adhere your tablet to your project as well.  Don’t forget to add a strip of Designer Series Paper into your pen so you have a matching set.

I’d love to hear who you will be creating this cute project for.

Have fun and Happy Stampin’
