Make it more interesting...

This is an idea of making something extraordinary out of ordinary. This black notebook measures 11x15.5cm. As you can see it's black and, as you can't see :), it's ruled inside.

You need:
  • black notebook
  • cardstock: black and red
  • mirror card in red and gold
  • stamp, acrylic block to use with the stamp
  • embossing pad, black embossing powder
  • gold string or ribbon
  • glue

The easiest way is to measure the notebook and cut rectangles of mirror card, cardstock, mirror card and card stock again. Every time you need to cut a rectangle which is a bit smaller than the previous one.

Stick them to the notebook.

Cut a rectangle of red card stock which is 4.5x10cm and stamp it with Chinese flowers stamp or any other you like using embossing ink pad or ink which dries longer (Distress Ink by Tim Holz works well). Sprinkle with black embossing powder and heat up with heat gun.
Cut a piece of gold mirror card 5x11cm and stick red card stock onto it. Make a round hole and tie a gold string or gold ribbon in a knot.

Attach to the notebook.
