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!
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.
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!)
Next, to make tabbed pages, cover several pages with Therm O Web Memory Runner XL adhesive and cover with patterned paper here:
And there you have it, a very inexpensive but super cute gift inspired by Pinterest!
