Are you ready for my project?

A simple little notepad transformed into a purse book ready for those times when you need to hand a quick note, address or just to keep the kids busy while you are chatting with someone at the store.

Grab a small notebook or pad of paper and begin to change the front in minutes! I used Sticky Panels to adhere the metal craft sheet to the front and back of the book then trimmed away extra material around the edges. Next is the embossing. Use an embossing pouch to prepare the surface and then stamp with embossing ink. Sprinkle embossing powder over it, tapping off excess and then heat set the powder. Clean off any dust from the embossing pouch and your all done. Oh, add a closure with a button and some burlap twine.

Product details are at the bottom of my post because I'm sure you'll want to move forward on to more fun projects.
