Hello there – It’s Tya here with a fun tutorial on how to stretch your cut files. I love making lists and notes so I always have a notebook or sticky notes around and I wanted to make covers for the both of them. I found this file - Sticky Note Holder 2, but I couldn’t find one that fit the 5×8 inch notepad so I decided to alter the the Sticky note holder to fit. It was so easy! Let me show you how I did it –
Next – go ahead and select the files- this is what it looks like -
Cut the sticky note holder out like normal. – it had 2 flowers and a small dot in the center of one of the squares included with it and I am not using them so I just deleted them. To make the notebook cover – I took the measurements of the notepad and then adjusted my cut file so that it was a little bit bigger than the note book.
The file ended up being 8 1/2 x 11 – but i used a 12 x 12 piece of paper just to make sure it cut all around. I resized the pattern paper for the front of the notebook to be 5 x 8.
Here are the covers-
I love the way the covers turned out and it was so easy! Just a few different measurements and I had a custom made notepad cover that I just love!
I added a ribbon to the cover before I added the pattern paper for a fun enclosure.
Hopefully I have inspired you stretch you cut files to be able to use them on all different shapes and sizes! It is so much fun to add a little custom touch to you projects. Thanks for stopping by!
