Today I was thinking about whipping up some notebooks for the fall craft fair but I was not sure what to put on the cover. Then I remembered this card I made a couple of weeks back. You can see it here.
I just redid as a card front. My notebook actually measures 5-1/2" x 4-1/4". I have a Rubi Coil punch machine, and I have a bunch of coils. I don't have the coiling machine. The last time I checked (a few years ago) it was around $500. I figured for that much money I can just rent a movie and coil them by hand and come out ahead!!! Plus it's electric so it would also cost money for the electricity. I'd rather spend the electricity on a movie!!! Anyway, with all of that sane math aside, I just put the coils on by hand. It goes quick and I have yet to complain about it, so it must be an ok thing to do!!! LOL
I have a few more to make but I think I will trim the left side of the white a little so the white doesn't get punched when I do the front and back covers together. It looks ok, but I think it would look better if the white didn't get punched.
I have been making notebooks for years and LOVE it! I use to sell the blanks but I didn't always have enough card stock on hand to fill all of the orders. Plus now with postage/shipping being so much higher, it would cost a lot to ship all of that heavy paper. But it was a fun little business while it lasted.
I need to finish up the remaining notebooks and get them bagged up for the craft fair.
Thank you SO much for visiting today,
