Vintage Easter Notebooks

Oh, how I love making the notepads. I created these vintage inspired Easter goodies using some new egg paper I found at my local scrapbook store. Karen Foster has a great vintage Easter patterned paper line this year. The egg paper is a favorite of mine. For the notepad toppers, I used the Egg die from Papertrey and a new Martha Stewart bunny punch I picked up at Michael's. I punched the bunnies out of green, pink and blue patterns from the Pretty Pastels collection. I stamped both the egg dies and the punched bunnies with a small script stamp from Background Basics: Text Style. The eggs are embellished with ribbons that I hand dyed, Vintage Buttons tied with Rustic Jute Twine and papers cut with Papertrey's Medium Scalloped die. The *happy happy spring* sentiment is from Pine's Egg Hunt stamp set.
The cream notepads are from Papertrey also, the perfect size for supply list, grocery lists, etc.
For simple wrapping of the notepads, I used large glassine sacks from Papertrey. I tied the sacks with a simple vintage dyed ribbon and vintage stained tag. So simple, but so pretty.
Hope you enjoy! There's a few more left in my Etsy shop.

Another darling notepad. I made them for teacher friends at Christmas time and they went crazy. I guess they will need spring pads soon! Thanks for the ideas. I love how you stamped on the bunny punches. Why don't I think of things like that? Oh well, good news you think of it for me! Happy Day!
