Recycled Matchbook Note Pad

Howdy! Thanks for stopping by. Today I created a Matchbox Note Pad. For my inside pages I am using envelopes that I received in the mail. I like to recycle cardboard, envelopes, and greeting cards. I hope you are having fun crafting. Enjoy your day.
RECIPE
Kraft Cardstock for the base
Washi Tape Red and White Polk-a-dots for the bottom of the matchbox
Stapler to staple the bottom part of the (.5 inch scored)
8 envelopes
Embroidery thread (I tied around the folded envelope, then punched 2 holes at the top and brought the embroidery thread through and tied several knots to secure the envelopes.
Embellishments for the outside: DayDream Designs, Heart Bingo Calendar and I Love you Digital paper - Valentine Girl digital by Dearie Dolls
