Hi My Friendly Bloggers!
It's time for a New Challenge over at My Creative Time!
 Cathryn is the Host of this weeks Challenge and the Challenge is
BACK TO SCHOOL THEME
Make a card or 3D project for Back to School. A little something encouraging to slip in a back pack, lunch bag or brief case (if you have no one going back to school!)
 
 For my project today I made another notebook, a few ladies asked me how I made my notebook so I decided to take some step by step pic of it!!!
Hope this helps! :)
 
 
First step is to fold your paper in half then you place the stitched 4x6 journal die on the edge of your paper so the blade is knot going to cut the side, to keep your two layers together.
 this is what it should look like!!!
 Then you can pick a pattern paper you would like to use and cut two of those out with the
 stitched 4x6 journal die.
 For the base, you score both sides at the third line!!
  It should look like!!!
 With the pattern paper you score at the same line on both, at the third line!
But flip one over to the opposite side!!
 It should look like!!!
 Now glue it to the base
 Ok you will need to make two little cuts for your pen to go in,
you will cut to the score line!!

 
 

Hope you can join us at My Creative Time
can't wait to see what you create!!!
