Even though nobody seems to be interested by a tutorial, as I wrote one for my french blog, I thought it may interest someone here too… If you are not interested, just go your way or jump to the end of the post if you want to see the picture of the finished book.
– A spiral notebook,
– Assortment of paper (you can find them in scrapbook stores),
– Buttons, flowers, fibers, stickers and everything you can use to decorate your notebook,
– glue stick,
– hole punch
To do this book, I used: paper (Daisy D’s « Heirloom Red – Bouquet », Cosmo Cricket « Wanted : Doc Holiday », Bazzill ) and EK Success fibers.
* Step 1:
* Step 2:
Cover the with the paper.
There are 2 methods to do it:
1- Paste the cover and place it on the paper, then, cut all around the cover
2- Cut the paper at the good size and stick it on the cover
I would recommend the first method when the paper recover the all cover and the second when it doesn’t.
Once the papers are stuck, don’t forget to cut the surplus.
* Step 3:
Add ornaments (fibers, flowers, stickers, etc.) to decorate your covers.
I added a piece of fiber to hide the junction of the two pieces of paper.
I also stuck two pieces of Bazzill paper (a yellow one and a red one on which one I printed the word « Adresses » and stuck a piece of vellum on which one I printed a text, than I added a sticker and two brads).
* Step 4:
* Step 5:
You are done🙂
I hope this tutorial was useful and I hope to see your altered books soon😉
