My helper in all things crafty. And our supplies. You like the makeshift cutting/glueing surface?
This is Jocelyn's notebook. It was kind of the trial run and she was in a hurry to use it. I measured the paper and cut around the cover exactly, but that didn't give me the smooth edges I wanted.
So with mine, I cut an extra flap so that I could fold it over and glue it to the inside of the cover. You can barely see the flap in the right hand side of the photo.
The finished product. I am so proud that I picked such fun paper!
See the super cute ribbon? Don't you want some?:) I glued a piece to the front and back covers so it would tie on the side.
A close up of the flower. I made it myself! I found the easy tutorial here. You better believe I will be making more of these! Definitely worth the time and it turned out so beautifully. I used two different kinds of paper and then I cut two of the green ovals out of the leftover paper to make the leaves.
So there it is. It did take a little while to make (about 1 1/2 hour ) but I was so pleased with the result. Now, I have the perfect sermon note and prayer journal! Yay!
