I am a Target gal! I love it! Sometimes, I go just to browse and get the kids and me out of the house. Sometimes, I go to get essentials I need for the home. But, if I don’t have a list with me, I can get a little too excited about all the cute things in the dollar section and leave with more than I went into Target for. Can I get a I-feel-ya-girl?! 😂
So, I made a free printable to make this cute Target Shopping List! And for you to make one too!
Follow this DIY tutorial and you will have a cute shopping list for your trips to Target! It was so simple to make.
DIY Target Shopping List Notepad
- Printer Paper
- Thick Brown Card Stock
- 1.18 inch Decorative Tape
- Scissors or Paper Cutter
- Glue (I used Clear Elmer’s Glue)
- Hot Glue & Glue Gun
- Print out 5 sheets of the free Target Shopping List printable, HERE.
- Next, cut the list pages into 3 equal sizes using scissors (if you have steady hands) or a paper cutter (if you don’t have such steady hands).
- Then, grab one of the blank lists and line on the edge of the thick brown card stock. Use it has a stencil to cut it the same size as the blank list. After I did that, I trimmed the list pages to be slightly shorter than the card stock, so it showed. You will now have 15 list pages and the card stock will be the back of your notepad.
- Next, line up the top of the list pages and the top of the card stock and paper clip them together. Then, using clear glue, glue the top in a straight line (you want it to be thick to hold all the pages and the card stock). Let it dry completely for 2-3 hours. If you’re not patient with it, like me, you may use a blow dryer to dry the glue. Make certain to use the dryer at a safe distance from the paper (you don’t want the paper catching fire – Eek!).
- After the glue is completely dry, it’s time to add the decorative tape. I left the tape on the roll and lined up the left, top edge of the notepad with the end of the tape on the front of the notepad. Then, I smoothed the tape over to the other top end of the notepad making certain it was in a straight line.
- Next, flip it over to cut the decorative tape to be the same length as the top of the notepad. Use the edge of the card stock as a ruler.
- Next, fold the excess decorative tape over to the back of the notepad. You now have a cute binding.
- You can keep the notepad just like it is or add a magnet to it to keep it on your fridge. I used a magnet that was on another magnetic notepad that I had and just decided to keep. Good thing! I knew it would come in handy one day. If you don’t have one, they sell magnets at Michael’s or Hobby Lobby. If the magnets aren’t on sale, google Hobby Lobby Coupon or Michael’s Coupon and you can find a 40% off coupon code to use at checkout. To glue the magnet, apply hot glue on the back of the magnet and press the glue side on the top back of the notepad just below the decorative tape.
- You now have a cute Target Shopping List Notepad to use the next time you need to go to Target. I am not guaranteeing you still won’t buy those cute things they have, but it will surely help to have a list and a plan.
