Frugal Friday – Altered Note Book

It’s time to start thinking about Christmas gifts, if you’re making them.  Here is something for teachers or co-workers.  This can be done with scraps of paper.

I just took a piece of cardstock (larger than my note book by about 1/2″ in all directions), dampened it and… now please don’t have a heart attack, wad your cardstock up in a ball.  Keep breathing, everything will be okay.  Unwad (is that a word?) your cardstock, hand smooth it, being gentle.

At this point you can take an ink pad and rub it gently over the surface of your cardstock, inking the wrinkles of you cardstock.  You can use a coordinating or contrasting color, your choice.  Next, with a medium heat iron smooth the cardstock as flat as you can. This gives your cardstock a faux suede or crushed velvet look.

Now you’re ready to adhere it to your notebook, trim the excess to the size of the notebook.  Embellish as desired.

If you have any questions please leave them in the comments below.
Thanks for stopping by, come back soon and stay awhile.
Happy Scrapping.

Let’s scrapbook together, it’s cheaper than therapy.
