So here is a project I have made multiples of: Note Pad Covers. I found the directions on another CTMH rep's blog: annettescreativejourney.blogspot.com She gives excellent instructions complete with photos, so I'm not going to reinvent the wheel, I'll just show you the ones I've made:
I made another one yesterday with Huntington but I haven't photographed it yet. One comment I remember from Annette's post is 'once you make one of these you won't be able to stop' - so true! They are lots of fun and can be assembled in about an hour.
Some tips: Supplies are all CTMH except -
Sticky Canvas - I found this online, both Joann.com and Scrapbook.com carry it.
Scor Tape - Only Archiver's carries this stuff (in the Denver area, at least), I've also found it online thru Amazon.
12 x 12 chipboard - I found some nice medium weight chipboard thru Amazon. A pack of 24 sheets was just under $10
Pentel pens can only be found at WalMart.
Tim Holtz metal corners - found just about everywhere! I've also used corners from We R Memory Keepers Main Squeeze - I found them online thru Scrapbook.com You don't need the tool to use the corners, just pound them down with a hammer just like the Holtz ones.
And make sure you have plenty of CTMH Bonding Memories glue and a bone folder! I've also dedicated an older Fiskars paper cutter to cutting only heavy-weight stuff like chipboard and plastic paper as these mediums do a number on your cutting blades.
More ideas for note pads in my next post! I think I'm addicted. Hubby teases me about the quantity of notes I'm always writing, but I swear, if I don't write it down, it's as good as forgotten!
Thanks for stopping by...
