Here's what the finished product looks like:
- A sheet of cardstock
- Coordinating designer paper
- Your favorite Rubber Romance image (I used my favorite - Melanie the Shopper)
- A mini legal tablet
- Red line tape or scor-tape
- Inventory sheets (see below)
Trim cardstock to 8 1/2" by 10 1/2". Score at 5 1/8" and 5 7/16" along the long side. Crease and add mini legal pad with red line tape.
Add a strip of designer paper to the top binding of the legal pad. I used some dp from Basic Grey's Origins collection. Also create a pocket from a triangular piece of designer paper. Just glue on the two legs of the triangle not the hypotenuse (betcha didn't know you'd get a little geometry today, did ya?). I added this so I could tuck stuff here - specifically my Copics color chart that shows what markers I already own.
Time to add the inventory sheets. I created inventory sheets, so I could list the stuff I already have. This way I won't be buying duplicates when I go to the store. So far, I've made sheets for brads, buttons, gemstones, inks, felt, punches, Nestabilities, Cricut cartridges, and embossing folders. I made two different sheets - one allowing for two lists and another allowing for one longer list. I simply filled out my lists, stapled them together, adhered them with one strip of red line tape at the top, and covered the staples with a strip of designer paper.
Here's a photo of the inventory with two short lists:
INVENTORY FILE WITH YOU!!
Dress the cover of your portable inventory/notepad holder. I added designer paper, ribbon, buttons, and this fabulous Rubber Romance image of Melanie the Shopper....I even paper pieced one of her bags as you can see in this close up:
Have a great day creating!
