When I went in our local Sainsburys last week I spied some notepads being sold off at the bargain price of 20p each so of course had to put a few in my trolley. This is an A7 size so not too big a job to cover and I went for an autumnal theme for my first play.
I stencilled the card intended for the cover with Memory Box stencil 'texture brilliant' and an assortment of inks, snipped it by hand so that I could put it through the wired top and then tied some yarn (that had been bought for a crochet project) around it. One of my favourite dies is the Memory Box 'chloe stem' as it's so versatile - use it as a single stem, in clusters, add pearls and so on - so I always have a few cut in white card ready for use and I just coloured a couple of them with Promarkers and trimmed to fit behind some flowers with a button added to the centre. Finally I added a couple of butterflies. So all in all just a bit of fun with snippets and stash.
and a close up to show the butterflies a bit better
