Over at Eclectic Ellapu this week, the challenge theme is "Anything for Teacher".
I made a notebook, wire bound. The size is an A6 (approx 105 x 148mm)
Please note: This is a photo heavy tutorial of how I made the notebook :)
I cut some grey board approx 220mm x 110 mm and creased it at 158mm and 175mm (these sizes will depend on the size notebook you choose to make)
I cut some paper, cut to 148.5 x 105 mm.
I chose some printed paper to decorate the cover. As I wanted a layered cover edge, I marked on the back roughly where I needed the base layer to at least cover.
Onto the back of the grey board, I stuck two strips of strong two sided tape. When I was happy with the postioning, I stuck the front cover to the back.
The final photos showing how I decorated the cover.
Although this is for the "Anything for Teacher" challenge, I don't need a teachers gift for a few years! So for once I am gifting myself with this notebook, a notebook to write any notes, sketches or project ideas while I am away from my desk. I am thrilled with it, and find the size perfect for carrying around with me!
Why not give the challenge at Eclectic Ellapu a try?
