Thought I would show you the notebooks I covered for the teachers I work with as an end of year present.
The first one, the black and white one, I covered with sticky back plastic - that Blue Peter staple - what has happened to that programme have you seen it lately gone all hip and trendy? lol
Rosie gave me this piece when I met her back in May at a workshop and I have only just got round to using it. Thanks Rosie. I then went and bought a roll for myself - not bad £5.50 from Wilkinson.I also used a chipboard letter which I painted with a Ranger Dabber and covered with Glossy Accents and then stuck 3 gems into it while it was wet and finished with ribbons on the spiral.
The next book I covered with Cosmo Cricket Jitterbug papers and chipboard letters which I doodled and covered in Glossy Accents. I stuck a crown brad above the S which I got from a Bubbly Funk kit and stuck some gems to the flower middles. Ribbons where tied to the spiral and I made a page marker from some leather thong and beads from my stash.The next book I covered with blue bazzill card and attached two blooms with a brad and ribbon. The sticker letters were covered with - yes you guessed it Glossy Accents to make sure they didn't come off with use. I used Gloss Touch 3D paint to make small dots around the outside of the cover and attached ribbons to the spiral.
The last notebook - yippee! I hear you shout - have you nodded off yet? lol Has been covered with paper - I can't remember the make sorry. I attached blooms to the front with brads. I attached a ribbon across the front of the notebook this time - not down the spiral and stuck the letters P and H. A bit of doodling round the edge and voila!
Thanks for staying with me on this rather long post. More tomorrow I'm afraid, that's postings not notebooks. lol
