Hey there !
How are you all doing? It is midweek so that only means one thing ……only 5 hours to go and we will be on the right side of the weekend! Do you have any plans? Me I am working then I will have to get my crafty on, on Sunday to make all the blog posts for next week as I am going to visit my mammy In Scotland! Yay!!
Anyway sorry for the ramblings, today I am bringing you another simple notebook, easy to make and can either be used hanging up, in a bag or stuck to the fridge using a magnet. It is a pretty one though. ( I am leading up to the more difficult notebook on Friday on my video, so come back for that!)
Oh doesn’t it look great in those colours? Everything just pops. You will notice that I am using my fav Wilko notebooks again as they are cheap and cheerful and the paper is really good quality considering. Of Course you can make this any size you like. just leave room round your notebook be 1/4 inch. Here is my measurements though.
All measurements in Inches (cm in brackets)
Melon Mambo 3 3/4 x 4 1/2 (9.6 x 11.5 )
Basic Black 4 x 4 3/4 (10.1 x 12.1)
Pop of Pink DSP 3 1/4 x 2 (8.2 x 5)
So as I said really simple to make. On the basic black piece you need to tape your bakers twine to the top and then for the melon mambo piece I used dimensionals as I did not want my notebook to be resting on the bakers twine. This would cause a lot of wobbly writing in the middle ( and I don’t know about you but my writing is not so great, it does not need any help to be worse!!)
On your notebook you need to fold over the Pop Of Pink DSP to cover the ugly edge. Do not stick it down on the front though. ( See previous post video if you are unsure). The tie a piece of ribbon round. How much you will need depends how nifty you are with your bow making……me not so great but not to bad…..lol
And that is it. Instead of tying the ribbon to the top you could always use one of your punches and punch out a shape from a magnetic sheet ( you know the ones we store our dies on. They work great) Test it out first though before you glue it down that you have got the right side ( I may have done that a few times).
And that is my little project today. Quick and simple but looks great especially if you have a black and melon mambo kitchen!!! Oh the flower is from the Blossom punch with an enamel dot stuck in the middle.
Thanks for joining me today. As I eluded to earlier I will be making a hard cover notebook on Friday so do pop back for that and I will be using the pop of pink DSP. Such beautiful paper. So I will catch up with you on Friday, have a great week and happy crafting folks, whatever you may be making Mandy 😘
