Printable Candy Shop Notepad

I am a list maker and con­stantly grab small pieces of paper to jot down my lat­est list, be it with words or pic­tures. My 9-year-old sis­ter loves paper and lists as much as I do, so rather than fight over the lat­est cute pad of paper, it was time to make our own.

You can buy padding com­pound designed for mak­ing tear-off notepads, but you’d prob­a­bly need sev­eral life­times to go through a whole jar. Instead, you can use craft glue (like Aleene’s Tacky Glue) to craft a pad of paper, and with this print­able, it will look like a happy lit­tle candy shop!

What You Need

Step 1
Print page 2 of the Candy Shop Notepad tem­plate onto paper. This will make up the pages of your notepad, so print 5 or 6 copies. Cut the paper along the trim lines at the edges. A paper cut­ter makes this eas­ier and more accurate.

If you’d rather, you can use plain paper cut into six equal pieces (25/6 x 51/2 inches).

Step 2
Print page 1 of the Candy Shop Notepad tem­plate onto card stock. Choose one of the shop awnings for your notepad and cut it out. Save the rest for mak­ing more notepads, because you know you’ll want a bunch!

Step 3
Hold all of the notepad pages together and tap the edges on a table to make sure they’re as straight as pos­si­ble. Add the awning at the front and hold it tight. Now, run a thick bead of glue along the top edge, smooth­ing it out using the tip of the glue bottle.

Step 4
Clamp the clip or clips onto the notepad to keep the top of the pages held closely together as the glue dries.

Step 5
As the glue dries it will start to shrink, become almost clear, and look a bit like plas­tic. It’s eas­ier to see on this blue paper.

Step 6
Once the glue is com­pletely dry you can remove the clips and use your notepad for doo­dles, lists, or happy notes to give your friends!
