Step 3: Print 4 starter sentences on white cardstock. You can download the ones I used HERE. Cut to 21/2" w x 1" h and adhere over the words "I Just Want to" that are printed on the note pad sheet.

Step 5: To decorate the cover, I started with pattern paper and added the banner, the "i love you" sticker and "to the moon and back". Then I added an overlay. I adhered the "love you forever", clouds and wood button on top of the overlay. The book is held together by gold binder clips.
