28 Days of Adding Happiness – Create a Notepad

HappyMondayToday was my last day in Walt Disney World. It really is the happiest place on earth! I just love it. One of the special touches that Disney offers is a button pin that tells others you are celebrating something special. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary, so we received pins to wear that told everyone it is our first anniversary. Wherever we went, people congratulated us. We also had a few unexpected surprises such as a champagne toast and a couple cupcakes. It was all very magical!

All of this excitement served as a reminder that every day is worth celebrating. People don’t celebrate nearly as much as they should. I thought this was a really interesting theme that coincided with the idea of adding happiness to our lives. If we all realized that the little things were just as important to celebrate as the big things, we would probably all be a little happier. We might all smile a bit more and even be more appreciative of each moment we have to spend with the ones that we love.

Originally this tutorial was geared toward wishing everyone a happy________, whether it be a happy birthday, a happy un-birthday, a happy first day of school, or even as simple as a happy Monday. Due to some technical problems I was having before leaving on vacation, I was unable to take pictures with the printable I had prepared. Instead, I took pictures for the tutorial using another printable that I had already made. You can download either printable or even make your own.

What you will need:

  • Printout
  • Hot Glue gun (I suggest using a high heat one so the glue doesn’t latter melt in high heat)
  • Hot Glue sticks


1.  First Printout your templates or create your own, and cut them apart.Printed cutouts2. Using your hot glue gun, glue them all together like in the picture.Glue3. While the glue dries, squeeze the pages together tightly.Squish4. Let the hot glue cool completely before tossing the notepad in your bag.FlipFront FlipPurse 5. Now whenever you want to brighten someones day, you can tear of a page from your notepad, fill in the blanks, and give them a little note!Click on either image below to download the template for you notepad:
