Create this Altered Notebook with Spellbinders from an inexpensive spiral
bound book that you can buy anywhere.
Then customise it to create a small gift for someone special and for any occasion
And because they are so cheap I can make a new one when ever I want.
Make them to suit your recipient for use as an address book, to keep handy on their desk for notes, as somewhere to write down a favorite recipe or just to store phone numbers in.
Handy little items to give as gifts for Christmas and they can be personalised with the recipients name
This one has the addition of flowers, ribbons and feathers and the printed digital image has been coloured with Promarkers.
They can of course be altered without Spellbinders and you will find written instructions here for the Altered Notebook
When you buy your spiral bound notebooks it is important to make sure that the spiral can be opened.
Some have the wire running through in one continuous run and these are NOT what you need as the spiral will not open for you.
You need to be able to open the spiral up completely and gently so as not to bend it out of shape.
Then you will be bale to remove both the covers ready for you to work on them.
On these two books Spellbinders have been used to create the flower sprays that cascade down the front covers.
And there is a tutorial to show you how to make these lovely Spellbinders Blossoms
To this notebook I have added in some really pretty Lace to the embossed panel and added lots of sparkle to the petals
The Diamanté flourish is the final touch
This black and white book notebook has Nestaboard shapes added to it and I apologise about the wrong label number.
These are Labels 23 and NOT as I said in the video Labels 20.
The Nestabling on the shape and the flourishes on both books are
products that are available from Want2Scrap
I hope you will give these pretty notebooks a try and then whenever you have an occasion coming up ... Birthdays, Christmas, or as an alternative to chocolate eggs etc. then this Altered Notebook with Spellbinders will fit the bill.
Make one for yoursefl too and keep it handy for all those little things you need to jot down
