Valentine’s Day Mini Notebooks {DIY Gifts}

Valentines Day mini notebooks ♥ EverythingEtsy.com

Valentines Day is my favorite holiday … must be all the hearts and all the pink!

These little notebooks are easy to make and inspired by the cuteness of conversation hearts … all sweet & colorful!

What to gather for this project:

kraft paper, index cards, heart punch, bone folder, stapler (or sewing machine) and mini clothespins.

print

Start out in a word processing program (I used Microsoft Publisher), divide your sheet into four even sections choose a font you like and print out the words “write me”.  Cut into four sections for the covers.

index

These colored index cards are my new favorite thing, from Staples, but white 3 x 5 cards would be cute too! First score the covers with a bone folder and a ruler, and fold them in half … then move on and score each index card the same way (i used 3 cards).

score

Line the cards up inside the cover and trim the bottom of the cover, to resemble a little book.

Sew down the crease with a long stitch length on a sewing machine… a stapler would work well if you don’t sew! Don’t forget to punch a little heart out of the cover …

stitch

Use the mini clothespins to hold a pencil inside and keep the pages closed.  Let your kids help you with the assembling process and they can be passed out as Valentines for school… without all the sugar!
