Patterned Papers - Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends! Welcome to another blog hop Wednesday brought to you by the Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team. This week we've all made projects with some of the cool patterned papers from Brutus Monroe! I chose to make these cute little mini notebooks.

I followed this tutorial here:
All of the notebooks and the inserts are laminated to make them durable. I was thinking I might make some for Christmas gifts and attach them to keychains for my nieces and nephews! They're 4 inched high which is a really adorable size.

For the first notebook, I used papers from the Fabulous Flamingo pad. I used a circle punch to cut out the two little lovely dove flamingos, and glued the circle to the front before I laminated it.

For the second notebook, I used the Fresh Squeeze paper pad, and I made a thin shaker window on the front! I laminated the notebook cover first, and then adhered the shaker window on after. I love the bright citrus tones in this paper pad.

For the Watercolor Galaxy paper pad, I did add the inner pockets as she showed in the video. The galaxy papers are so gorgeous!

These were very easy to make with a paper trimmer and a scoring board. I did laminate them, as the crafter did in the video, but you could go without it if you don't have one! It would just make them less durable. These would make great little gift items, and I love the colors in these three Brutus Monroe paper pads! 

Next, hop over to Cassie's blog for her beautiful project!
