Hope everyone can understand this!If you have any questions just ask!
A friend from another board showed us how to make them and I just had to give it a try!

I hope i do this right, so please have patience with me.
Make a Template,which is 8 1/2" X 3 3/4".
You'll make the 1st fold @ 3 1/2" the 2nd fold @ 4" the 3rd fold @ 4 1/2". On the 2nd fold is where you'll cut your notches out. cut a notch at 1 1/4" and at2 1/2".
Next find the wallpaper sample that you have chosen for your top cover. And lay your template on the back side of the wallpaper and trace around the template and cut out. Be sure to mark your fold lines onto the back side of the wallpaper.
just transfer the fold lines to your wall paper on the back side then use your bone folder to mark them with or a pen.
At this point use your bone folder and crease your fold lines then cut your notches out too.
Then put some double sided tape on the back of the piece or use tack glue or whatever adhesive you like to use to hold things together. you can even run your top cover of the wallpaper through your xyron machineif you have one(which I dont so I used tacky glue.
Next find your second piece of wallpaper that will be your inside of your cover piece.
Take your first piece and lay it onto the backside of your second piece and press down. Then cut out around the pieces close to your first piece nice and neat.
Next find your fold lines (look close at your top piece) then take your bone folder and crease your lines real good and cut out your notches again.
Once you cut your notches out you'll be able to see the folds and where they should fold down into the cover so that only your middle fold is sticking up for your pen or pencil.
Next i take a stapler (you dont have to do this part) but it just keeps my folds on the inside of the cover down and out of the way. I staple up to the fold line.
I take some red double sided tape and put them on the 2 little pieces i just stapled and tape them down.
I then put some double sided tape on the back side of the memo pad so that it stays in place.
I then take my corner punch and punch out all 4 corners but you dont have to do this part.
I then use letter stickers to write the word "NOTES" and put them on the bottom or side of the memo pad cover and Wah-La your done. Of course you keep adding embellies to the cover.
