Design Team: Liz (Unik By Yes) Cycle 9 Week 3

Revamped Notebook

Liz is back with another fun & practical tutorial! See what she created below!

Hello Crafty friends!
Liz here today to share with you a revamped notebook using the eBosser and Teresa Collins Beautiful Words.  I while ago I got a 3” square notebook at my local craft store but the cover wasn’t very appealing so a makeover was due and I truly LOVE the new and improved version! ;) I hope you do too!

Creative supplies:

Teresa Collins Beautiful Words EF
Core’dinations Paper Vintage collection
Darice’s Sand it Set
Craft knife
Strong Hold Permanent double sided tape (I used Scotch 3M ATG Tape Glider Gun)
Mod Podge (Matt Finish)
Eyelet and Eyelet setter (I used Crop-a-dile Big Bite)

eBosser plate combo: ACD + Standard Embossing Folder (for tissue paper)
Craft level: Easy
Time: 20- 30 mins. Depending on drying time

Creative process:

·         Trace the perimeter of your notebook on the back of your paper adding about 1/16” all around.
·         Trim and score the spine lines.
·         Position it on the portion of you Teresa Collins Beautiful Words E.F, you want to use and run it through the fabulous eBosser - remove any excess paper with your craft knife once the project is finished.
·         Sand the word (s) you want to stand out.
·         Give your paper a quick dust. Set aside.
·         Position your ribbon on the top right corner inside of the back cover.
·         Using the eyelet setter make a hole through both, ribbon and cover.
·         Set the eyelet.
·         Glue your embossed piece to the cover using your permanent adhesive, being careful to “contour” the spine very well. For me it worked to glue from the edge towards the spine and “break” the resistance of the paper by pressing the spine cover between my thumb and index finger to create sort of a “u shaped” deep groove.
·         Open and close to make sure the embossed cover is fully attached to the notebook’s cover.
·         Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to finish.
·         Let Dry
