note book cover

Standard

Hello visitors

I was having a tidy up in the craft room and got a bit distracted, I found another note-book that needed covering so instead of putting it away I started another little project but made the effort to do it from start to finish tonight, I have too many unfinished projects at the moment lol.

This is a small note-book with ring binders

I removed the rings and covered the gray board with some black and white patterned paper

Time is short, book cover

Standard

Hi.

Today I would like to share with you a little note-book that I have covered using Heartfelt Creations paper pad ‘ Once upon a time’

I started off with a 5 1/2″  sq lined note-book

Using Heartfelt Creations paper pad Once upon a Time I measured and cut my selected page an inch bigger all the way around.

I snipped off the corners so it would fold in and made some cuts at the spine, then glued the paper in place.

This is the back, I also covered the spine with another piece of paper and cut the shape from a spellbinder boarder die, and then bent this around the front.

I used a clock die ( one of my Hobbylobby purchases ) and black card, I cut a sentiment from the paper pad and used silicone glue to raise it up a little.

I also inked the book edges with distress inks in Black soot and Vintage photo.

Using Creative expressions cast bronze metallic gilding wax,

I rubbed this over the black card border and clock, and also over the little metal Finnabair corner.

I made a small pocket on this page

And I covered the inside and made a small pouch with a tag insert
