To Do...... Tutorial 3

Hi Guys,  It's been a very busy week, with lots of crafting, competitions and a giveaway on my facebook page, with so much going on I am worried I will miss something and I love a list, so I decided to make myself a place for all my lists..................






I started with an A4 piece of grey chipboard and punched two holes for my ribbon


I wanted it to have rounded corners so drew around my double sided tape and then cut off the corners with a strong pair of sissors

Next I stuck my chosen paper on the chipboard using double sided tape


I turned it over and trimmed the paper to match the curved corner, cutting from behind gives a nicer finish, I then used my sanding pad to smooth the edges


I then chose a ink pad in a blue chalk finish to run around the edges to soften the feel and I also pushed the paper through the holes using my pokey tool




Next I added a ring binder fitting from an old ringbinder, I did this using a riveting tool but you could use hot glue 


I then picked out some decorations form the love a cuppa kit and used a promarker in pastel blue to edge all the pieces, this helps them to stand out a little form the background


I used foam pads to attach them to a piece of card for added dimension, this makes the front cover of the pad, I also cut several pieces of cheap printer paper, I found that dividing the paper into 3 pieces made the most out of it.....I hate waste




Then I put it all on the binder and added some ribbon for hanging and hey presto your done.

I hope you like it.
