{60-Second Video Tutorial} Matchbook Notepads

Posted by Graphic 45 08/03/2018 34 Comment(s) Tutorials,Videos,#SimplyG45,

Hello, G45ers!

Happy Friday!  Today, we have a simply amazing 60-Second video tutorial on how to create Matchbook Doodle Books.  This tutorial is by our fantastic Brand Ambassador in Canada, Nichola Battilana.  Nichola used a variety of G45 collections including: Imagine, Floral Shoppe, Little Women, and Master DetectiveStay tuned for the full post to see who won this week's blog contest.
 

Matchbook Doodle Notepads

By Nichola Battilana

 

“It occurred to me that this project might be too simple to share. I know the amount of time and effort that go into the beautiful, amazing, astounding projects shared on the Graphic 45 blog and this project is so easy it almost seems silly to show off these matchbook notelets.

 

 

But everyone starts somewhere, and inspiration often sprouts from the simplest of ideas.

 

 

The only materials you’ll need are 8” scrapbook paper, white printer paper, a stapler and double-sided tape. That’s it! You can add stickers and other embellishments if you’d like to gussy them up, that’s all you need to get started.

 

I spent an afternoon making loads, with a bunch of different Graphic 45 collections. I also made a super quick video to show you just how easy they are to make.

 

 

 

 

DIY Matchbook Doodle Notepad Tutorial by Nichola Battilana for Graphic 45
 

 

I love this paper from the Little Women collection. These matchbooks are finished off with coordinating stickers.

 

 

In case I need to take notes while sleuthing I’ve made these from Master Detective

 

I think that Sherlock would approve.

 

 

For keeping track of daydreams and doodles Imagine seems the perfect choice.

 

 

And finally some very pretty notelets with Floral Shoppe. How perfect would these be for favours at a ladies tea? I’m tempted to pretend to be a lady and host a tea just to prove it!

 

 

I love Floral Shoppe and there was something that caught my eye when I first saw it.

 

It is filled with Hogwarts house colours!

 

I found these Harry Potter printable house banners, printed and applied them to the covers. Somewhere to keep my potions and herbology notes. Too perfect, right?!

 

 

I don’t know about you, but I suspect there are some non-muggle types working at Graphic 45." ~Nichola

Nichol, not only are you Canadian and a master crafter, but you are a Harry Potter fan as well. You are definitely my kind of person!! (Although I make no claims to being a master crafter, I am Canadian and I am a huge HP fan)

This idea is perfect for favors for my quilters group luncheons and angel club tuck-ins...or just to tuck in birthday cards. And the best part is that I have all the materials on hand. Life is so much fun when one is a crafter!
