Stampin Up Tablet cover project

I have a little sweet project for you today. These make cute gifts and are so usable everyone likes them.
This holds a Jr Legal pad. I used Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist and Daffodil Delight for colors. The Designer series paper patterns stack in Subtles. Friendly Phrases, and French Script stamp sets, the Little Leaves Sizzlits die, Boho Blossoms punch, and the Decorative Lable punch.  Ribbon is Crumb Cake seam binding and I also used Crumb cake card stock and the scallop border punch for that little bit sticking out from under the pattern paper.  For the larger flowers centers I used pearls and some Dazzling Details in the center of the smaller flowers.
To start use a full sheet of cardstock, mark the middle and score 1/8" on each side of that mark. (I am finding that the off brand Jr legal pads are thinner so with the name brand you may need to score 1/4" on each side.
Stamp with the French Script, cut a piece of Crumb cake card stock the width you want, allow for 1/4" to be cut off using the border punch. Measure and cut your pattern paper so that it leaves just an 1/8" strip on one side and leaves the scallop sticking out however much you like.
Cut your leaves and flowers, the pattern paper had a different design on both sides so I used one both sides to get the effect, glue all that down then put your ribbon on your side edge piece letting it go over the top and down both ends a small amount to hold, glue that whole piece onto the side of the page.  Stamp your sentiment and punch out, also punch out using the Crumb cake.
Cut the bottom punched one in half and glue to the Marina Mist letting a little crumb cake show at both sides, then use Stampin Dimensionals to adhire so it pops up a bit.
Put glue on the top edge of the tablet and place inside. Done.
I hope you enjoy this, it really is easy and quick and can be done so many ways.
Have a wonderful weekend.
