Therm O Web Pinterest Week

This week, the Therm O Web team are creating Pinterest inspired projects. Before I even searched Pinterest, I remembered my friend (and co-design Scrapbook Circle Design team member) Diana Waite making altered composition books. And if you search Pinterest for altered composition books, there is tons of fabulous inspiration available. They make a nice, personalized and cheap gift! rk tow nb6 
 Start with a plain composition book - many dollar stores carry them. rk tow nb1 
 Using Therm O Web Super Stik, completely coat the cover of the book and the back side of patterned paper with adhesive. (Coating the cover and the paper insures permanent sticking power.) I used Simple Stories new line Vintage Bliss for this project. Perfect for a girl's notebook!

 Don't cover the binding with patterned paper. Instead use some Therm O Web SuperTape Sheets and a wide ribbon or trim. rk tow nb3 
 Cut strips of the Therm O Web SuperTape Sheets and completely cover the binding: rk tow nb4 
 Peel off the red protective backing an apply ribbon and trim to fit. Once the cover and binding are done, decorate the cover with other embellishments. (Zots are perfect for adding buttons!) rk tow nb 12 
 Next, to make tabbed pages, cover several pages with Therm O Web Memory Runner XL adhesive and cover with patterned paper here: rk tow nb 9 
and here:

 For a page with a seam, cover the seam with Sticky Lines: rk tow nb5 
and add a trim: rk tow nb 11 
 And there you have it, a very inexpensive but super cute gift inspired by Pinterest!
