Flowering Flourishes and Work of Art Notebook Weekend Project

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,
