Fathers Day note pad.

Felicity here today.
Remember back at this post here where I shared a little tutorial on making a sign for Daddy on fathers day? See post here.

I decided to go one step further and make this into a little notepad for Daddy.

Here is what I did.

Step 1: Take a photo of the finished project.

Step 2: using Photoshop I edited the photo so that all you see is the quote.  Then bring your opacity back to about 50% as you want it to very faint on the paper.

step 3: I then open a new blank canvas the size of an A4 piece of paper.
210mm x 297mm

step 4: back to the photo I resize the image the a 3 x 4 inch photo. (this is the size that the paper pad will be) This size will fit in a mans pocket or inside his diary.

step 5: I then dragged the photo into the new canvas numerous times till the new canvas was full.

step 6: Print this out on blank paper, making sure that you have photo to print in high/maximum quality.

step 7: once you have at least 10 pages, cut them out.

step 8: using some strong paper glue, join the paper at the top, with a very small line of glue.

step 9: Back this onto cardboard

step 10: Your little paper pad is complete.

Hope this inspires you to be creativity for Fathers Day.
