I used my Cinch and 3/8" coils to bind the top. I used some light weight cardboard that I had saved from who knows what for the covers. I then ran assorted dsp from Stampin'Up and Papertrey through my Xyron to apply adhesive to the back & applied the dsp to the covers. There are 2 note pads in each one applied with sticky tape adhesive. I tied on a pen using Baker's twine to complete the gift.
White cardboard backing: 2-1/2 x 8-1/2"
DSP: 2-1/2 x 8"
Thanks for looking!
