Everyone likes a nice looking jotter and non will look better than one done by yourself !!
Now days,with the HUGE variety of beautiful designer card stocks,this project is easy as a pie.
Here is a quick tut on how to make your own beautiful sewn notebook
What you'll need is :
10 printer sheets (can be blank or printed)
1 12x12" cardstock sheet by Tattered Angels #20864
So to start with, you'll take all your printer sheets stuck them together and fold them in half
Leave the width as is.
This will make your jotter's cover .
Place the folded sheets inside the cover .Mark 6 dots and pierce them throughout all the layers
Take your poly thread ,measure and cut it to two length of your notebook
Start inside the notebook on one end and make a simple running stitch passing through the holes
Leave a 2" tail!
When you finished stitching your thread will come outside to the cover side
Make a loop and knot it
Push the needle back inside through the same hole you just came out of
Tie an additional square knot and cut the ends short
Burn the ends with a lighter and your jotter is ready to write in and enjoy from
Let me tell you, this FUN tangled notebook will make someone soooo happy!!!
Aside the fact that Zentanle Art is super IN this season and giving such a lovely designed present will make anyone drool on , the Tattered Angels "Tattered Tangles" cardstock collection sheet I used to make it can also be easily drawn in, it's mistable and paintable !!!
So basically, you get one notebook and can end up with a completely different one at the end of use-just let your imagination fly and guide you towards all together new creation - color it in with your markers, mist it , glaze or paint it...anything goes,just have fun doing it :)
Uh, and one more thing-the reverse side of the paper is blank, but has the same great finish, so you can add your own designs to the inside cover and you'll never be bored in the classroom again ;)
