This little notebook is perfect for Mom to keep track of her grocery lists, passwords, to-dos, you name it. But the best part? It’s a super-fun and ultra-easy project to put together! With some Glue Dots® All Purpose Dots and a few die cuts on-hand, you’ll have yourself a cute little notebook in no time.
MADE BY: AMANDA TIBBITTS | TIME: 40 MINS
LEVEL: INTERMEDIATE | SIZE: 5” x 7”
- Glue Dots® All Purpose Dots
- 5” x 7” Office Depot plastic covered composition notebook
- “NOTES” die cut at 4.5” wide
- Three die cut flowers cut at 1.25” wide
- One die cut flower cut at 2.5” wide
- Two white strips cut at 5” wide by 1.25” height
- "Happy Mother’s Day" cut at 2.75” wide by 2.25” height
- Tag shadow cut at 4” wide by 5” height
- Tag top layer cut at 3.85” wide by 4.875” height
- 46” of gift wrapping ribbon
- With your handy Glue Dots® All Purpose Dots, glue the two 5” strips to the notebook cover. If needed, use the scissors to trim off any excess along the spine of the notebook.
- Use a few more Glue Dots® All Purpose Dots to glue the tag layers together.
- Use a couple more Glue Dots® All Purpose Dots to adhere the flowers together—just one dot per flower—and add their centers with one dot each. Use one more dot to stick each of three 1.25” wide flowers to the tag along the bottom.
- With one Glue Dots® All Purpose Dots, glue the 2.5” flower to the bottom strip on the notebook.
- Stretch one or two Glue Dots® All Purpose Dots with your hands to make them a little longer to wrap around the "Happy Mother’s Day" die cut. Use about three to stick the words to the tag. Follow this same process for the “NOTES” die cut to add to the top 5” white strip.
- Using the gift wrap ribbon, wrap the notebook up, add the tag to the tail, then tie the bow. Finally, cut away any excess ribbon and trim the ends to finish it with flair!
This notebook is so much fun to make, we recommend making a few at a time so you some have extras on-hand!

I began crafting in 1996 and simply fell in love with making my own cards. Long live snail mail! Crafting isn’t just a hobby for me, but a way of life… Teacher gifts, posters, scrapbooks, wood crafts? Yes, please! I have been married to my cute husband for 16 years and he definitely inspires me to try new things and enjoying the little things. As a stay home Mom, my time is spent raising my two girls, and raising the bar for my gift giving!
