Notes on the Go

I see that I never shared this little notebook project here on my blog. It's from November's Verve project parade, which was to create anything but a card. This is a little pocket (or purse) sized notebook.

I started by removing the wire from a 3 by 5 inch notebook.

Cut a piece of chocolate chip card stock to the exact size of the cover. Layer your card stock on the cover to punch the 1/8" holes in the card stock.

Glue the card stock on top of the notebook cover.

Decorate to your liking, and re-insert the wire coils.

What's In It?
Stamps: Snow Wonderful (Verve)
Paper: chocolate chip, certainly celery (Stampin' Up!); white (Papertrey Ink); Basic Grey
Ink: noir black (Palette)Accessories: snowflake punch (Martha Stewart); brad (K & Company); scallop scissors (Fiskars); copic markers; glitter (Stickles); white Liquid Applique; Xyron adhesive; 1/8" hole punch; 3" x 5" notebook

I can't believe you have the patience (especially this time of year!) to remove the coils from a spiral and put them back - you are amazing Bethany!

Hope your holidays are off to a great start. Thank you so much for being such a source of inspiration and admiration for me this year. I am hoping hubby gets me that light box you recommended for the holidays...

Best Wishes,
