Hold on tight to your dreams…

Hi Everyone..

I altered three wee notebooks today..

I bought these a while back at Stampers Grove, they are great to alter and I also got to use that new kraft and black paper pad that I had bought from the Range last month.

I kept them very simple, they are a great size for sticking in your handbag/purse so didn’t want to embelish them too much

notebooks 2

I cut the paper to size which was 2.5″ x 4″

notebooks 3

then inked all round the edges of the books and the patterned paper in black archival ink

notebooks 4

I applied scortape all round the reverse side of the patterned paper and stuck to the front and back pages of the books

notebooks 5

Then I finished them off with some Tim Holtz small talk stickers

notebooks 6

A nice quick and easy project for a sunday morning ๐Ÿ™‚

As always thank you for popping round
