Notepad Cover Download

By October 17, 2009General

Hello, all!  I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend thus far!  We pre-purchased tickets a few weeks ago to take the kids down to the Nashville IMAX theater for the opening of Where the Wild Things are yesterday.  I loved the book as a child myself so I was very much looking forward to it!  The movie ended up being not quite we expected and actually pretty disappointing.  Have any of you seen it yet?  What id you think of it?

There have been quite a few requests/questions about the notepad cover I did for THIS POST from last week, using our new exclusive notepads.  I put together a free download for all of you to utilize in making your own versions of the notepad covers…


Download Notepad Pocket Cover Template (double)

Download Notepad Pocket Cover Template (single)

You'll notice that it has a built-in curved pocket flap.  You just fold it over to the inside of the the cover and adhere it along the bottom edge.  Super easy.  These templates are actual size, so you can just print and go if you wish.

There are two versions of the download, one for a double notepad, like I showed in my original post, and one for a single notepad.  I would love see what you create with this template is you put it to use!

Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!!!


P.S. For those of you that have inquired as to when our popular Take Note stamp set will be back in stock, it should only be about a two week wait!  Thanks for your excitement about this new product!

    Have a wonderful weekend. Sorry the movie was disappointing. It seems they can mess up just about everything, doesn’t it??!! It IS a great book; hope I’ll get to see the movie some time…

    Thank you Nichole! Can’t wait for my set to arrive.

    Did you think the movie was appropriate for an almost 5 year old? We can’t decide whether or not to take our son based on the reviews.

    Linda says:

    I saw the movie last night and must say I didn’t know what to expect since the book had so few words and basically was up to the imagination. Nothing I’d really recommend to see but very glad i saw it. For Melissa on taking a 5 year old – the “wild things” do play rough, throw each other around, throw things at each other etc. I think you’re better off creating your own story from the book. And oh yeah, thank you so much for the download Nicole.

    Karli says:

    Thanks so much for the template! Yay! I still love the book Where the Wild Things Are. I wasn’t going to see it because I love the magic created in my head & I didn’t want to ruin it. Know what I mean? But I heard a movie reviewer say that the movie WAS NOT for children- it is about the experience of childhood, something adults would be able to relate to & make the movie enjoyable but young children might be bored. The movie was INSPIRED by the book. I think a lot of parents thought the movie was the book remade & were quite disappointed. Sorry to hear that. Oh shucks! I knew I shouldn’t have waited on take note 🙁 I usually order right at the release, but I couldn’t this time.) I’ll wait for it to come in. wahhhh. Thanks Nichole!!!

    Thanks so much. You make our lives so much easier. I can’t wait to get my order; so glad I managed to get the Take Note set before it sold out! I haven’t seen Where the Wild Things Are, but our local reviewer gave it a pretty poor review.

    oh lovely note holder, now I need to get me some of those wonderful notebooks.
    we went to see the wild things movie yesterday and same thing, we were all kinda disappointed. The movie was just a tad bit too emotional for my kids. My almost 13 yr old said, mom it was sad and wierd, and took away from the book! so anyway…my family thinks it had its good and bad parts but def. not what we thought it would be either.

    Love the template for the notepads! I feel some Christmas gifts coming on!

    Plugged in ONline reviews movies for Focus on the Family. They did not give it a favorable review. For consideration: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. It got a much better review. I’ll take a little cheeziness over brooding for a kids movie any day!

    Should have listened to you. Huge disappointment…HUGE!!! That was the worst movie ever, and believe me when I say I have seen some real stinkers. Did the story even make sense? Excuse me, I have to go watch Lord of the Rings to renew my faith in movies. After Transformers (ick), Ponyo (boo!), and now Wild Things (yuck) I may just give them up all together.

    Marie says:

    Thanks Nicole for the template, I was just about ready to go to the October release to check it out again, so I can be ready when my notepads arrive. I received the notification yesterday that the order has been shipped but usually it takes several more days before the package is moving across country. Anyway thanks so much.

    I think the notepads are such a great idea and I am so ready to use them for gifts for the granddaughters teacher and friends and family. Thank you Mish and Nicole

    My daughter-in-law, son and the children went to the see the movie yesterday and they too were disappointed.

    TYSVM for this d/l! I came to your blog today to have another look at the notepads to see if I could re-create a cover and you’ve been generous enough to share templates! Now all I need to do is patiently wait for the mail carrier to deliver my goodies! I haven’t been this excited over a new idea for a long time!

    Thank you so much Nichole for the download. I am new to your blog and Papertrey Ink and have spent most of my weekend getting wonderful inspiration!!!! You are so talented. I recreated your Cupcake Take Along with a Halloween theme and received rave reviews. That idea is just tooooo cute. I think I’m gonna love this place. 🙂 Thanks again for brightening up my weekend.

    Amy says:

    Thanks Nichole! We took our 7 year old to the movie yesterday and I was disappointed as well. I thought the costuming and creation of the monsters was amazing, but was not thrilled with the interpretation of the story. I thought it was a bit dark for a kid’s movie.

    Thanks for sharing all of your creativity with all of us!

    Liz in MO says:

    Hi, I emailed customer service but haven’t heard back from them. On your template, when I print it out the height is 7 7/8 inches, the blurb on the note pads says that they are 8 inches tall. Is this true? Is my printer messing up the dimensions? I don’t have the notepads yet, but am hoping that they are a teeny, weeny bit smaller than 8 inches, because I already cut out a bunch of cardstock, ack!!!!! Thanks if you can respond. If you want to email me, my email is . I am anxiously awaiting either my order or an answer :>((( Thanks alot!

    Kacey says:

    Thanks for the download Nichole. I haven’t ordered my stuff yet, but plan on getting the notepads. As for the movie, I saw it Sunday with my almost 6 year old and 4 year old, and I would agree it was a bit disappointing. It was very dark for kids, not at all what we expected. The message is great, but way over their heads. A bit bleak for me, I like lots of color and a REALLY happy ending, the ending frustrated me. I loved the monster costumes though. OK, enough for my critics review 🙂

    Barbra says:

    Hi Nicole,
    We saw the movie this weekend and thought it was awful and so violent! I was ashamed as a parent of a 4 year old that we even stayed to watch the whole movie. Our boy was board and my husband and I came out of there depressed! That poor birds wing! Just what I want my boy to see, another boy biting his mom! Awful, horrible, just don’t go to see this movie if you haven’t already! Wouldn’t you agree?

    PurpleD says:

    So lovely of you to have the pattern ready for download! Thank you.

    My husband took me to see the movie. I haven’t read the book before (didn’t grow up in the States), but I think the movie was powerful. Not for children though. My husband, who could identify with some things the boy went through, was very touched.

  • 66
    Michelle S. says:

    Thanks for the template.
    I saw the movie and I was also disappointed. I didnt like it at all, not because it wasn’t “like the book” It was just dark, depressing, and really lacked a cohesive storyline. It moved SLOW and was boring. Cinematically it was a beautiful movie, but that alone could not save it for me. My twins are 4 and they were not scared of it, but they didn’t love it.

    hi nichole,
    i just received my pti order. i was so very excited to get all of my beautiful new stuff. i look forward to your release every month.
    i printed out the template for the notepads that you created for us. the template is smaller than the notepads. i do not know what i am doing wrong.any ideas?
    thanks again,

  • 68
    Diana Yockey says:

    I don’t know if I did something wrong, but this template did not fit the new notepads. The notepade are 8 inches long and the template measures 7 5/8 (or there abouts).
    However, the notepads are so darn cute and I can hardly wait to make the adjustment and get to get started!

  • 69
    Heather Chabries says:

    To those of you whose templates are printing smaller than 8 inches tall: in the print dialog box, check on the left hand side where it says Page Scaling. If it says “shrink to printable area” your template will print too small. Change it to “none” and your template will print in the correct size. Hope this helps!
