Grocery List Note Pad

This month, the challenge at Scrappin Chics Challenge Blog is a Kitchen theme.  I was going to do a layout of my kitchen remodel, but I am afraid that will end up being 4 pages!!  I did not have all the pictures handy, so I made a list of other projects (below) and my Grocery List Note Pad seemed the most fun!

I thought 3x8 would be a good size for a note pad, so I cut two pieces of watercolor paper and one piece of scrapbook paper to 3x8.  I took some loose leaf notebook paper and trimmed it to 3x8.  I wanted to have lines on my paper.

I dusted off my Bind-It-All.  I used my ATG gun to adhere my paper to the front cover and then punched the holes in both the cover and back pages.  Next I punched the holes in the notebook paper.

I welded a bunch of words using Don Juan.  These words are common items from a grocery list.

I ran the mesh of words through my Xyron.  I rubbed the backing paper as I pulled it off the word mesh.

I put the mesh on the cover.  I put the pages in between the covers and then flipped over the back page...

and put the o-wires through the holes.

I put the notebook back in the Bind-It-All and squeezed the wires closed.

Here is the notepad with the wires in.

Here is the inside of the note pad.
I added a little twine and a metal "doo dad" because it needed a little something and my metal one was flat.  Would have preferred a food item, but did not have one handy.

It is not too late to create a kitchen project and post it on the Scrappin Chics Challenge Blog!
