Ladybug Notepad

Last week my youngest, Phoebe was home from college on spring break.  She told me that her room-mate loved the handmade cards and things that I send Phoebe.  Well, it's always nice to be appreciated, so I decided to make this little notepad so her roommate could have it on her desk.

This is a cut file available from here from The Digi Chick.  It can be made into a card or mini album, and although probably more suited to a 'little gir'l, my daughter assures me that the' big girl' who is going to receive this will love it.

The file comes in 3 parts: the body (black), 2 wings (red) and the 6 spots (black glitter).  I used my Cameo to cut and re-size all the pieces, and then made large circles with white paper that were just slightly smaller than the body.  I punched a hole through everything and fixed it together with a brad.  Of course I had to add some googly eyes too!

Each of the notepad pages is stamped with a ladybug image - this stamp is from Stampin' Up and is called 'Very Punny'.

Hope you enjoyed my project today.
