Best of Everything Notebook Weekend Project

Well, these were extremely fun to make!  They are altered notebooks.  They open like a matchbook.  Click here to see another one I made a while back.  There is a photo there of one open.  

I just printed out my background paper from the Floral District download.  I'm hoping I got the size of the paper right.  I should order a package of the paper and compare it.  That way I will know in the future if what I'm doing in the program I'm using is correct!  I wish the paper would load up on the My Digital Studio to the exact size.  But it doesn't so it has to be played with until it's close.  Dragging it across the screen and trying to keep it even on both edges is difficult to do.  

Anyway, I like the paper here and I thought it would be SO pretty on these matchbook notebooks.  Click on the photo for a closer view.

I had used some retired 1/4" grosgrain ribbon because I didn't have any current ribbon.  I have a ton of ribbon to use up and I'm sure you demonstrators will just find something that is current to substitute with if you are planning on making something like these. 

I got my notebooks at The Dollar Tree.  They have lots of fun notebooks and booklets to alter.  I try to stay away from that section of the store when I go in there.  

The set I used here is "Best of Everything."  I have had a lot of fun with this set and would like to use every image in it before it retires!

I am going to wrap these up in clear cellophane wrap, price them and box them up for the fall craft fair.  If you plan on selling the things you make using Stampin' Up! products be sure to use the copyright stamp on the back of your work.  It's their policy.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
