Altered paper pads

I decided to make these as a little thank you to all of my pals for coming to my candle party. I saw  these plain pads at Walmart and thought...these would make cute little purse pads if I decorated them. I just measured them up...covered the pads with Bazzill Kraft cardstock using my ATG gun. Then decorated them with Echo Park-This and That line. I used the Cricut cart Letter Envy to make the Monograms...using my Gypsy of course...to make sure the letter would fit. I also used the cart George for the rectangle cuts for covering the pad...adjusting with my fav Gypsy too!The ribbon is all American Crafts. I then added a little sparkle using Cinnamon Stickles...and Voila...cute little purse pads...I hope they like them.  All of the supplies came from my fav LSS DAT'S.
I also submitted this in the Cricut Circle magazine challenge...to use the
cart Letter Envy and 2 other cuts.

I love this! I know your friend will love having these adorable little note pads...although I think they are way to pretty to stuff down in a purse! The colors and prints are so pretty and happy...love it!

Awesome idea Lee-Ann. I needed to right down some Bazzill colors at DAT'S and said I need a scrap piece of paper and voila Donna handed me my note pad. Thank You.
