This was such a cute idea.
I saw it on "scrapdaworld" on YouTube and just had to try to make it for notes on my desk.
I went to the Dollar Store and bought a pack of 3 little books.
First thing you do is fold all the pages in half.
After that I cut about 3/4" off sides of the the book cover.
Next I placed the book with the folded pages fanned out on it's side and traced around the cover and pages. Making the edge along cover into a gentle curve.
|Cut 2 from double sided paper|
I covered both the inside and outside cover with paper from K&Company paper book I had in my stash.
It took 1 piece of 8" x 8" paper for the whole project.
|Paper collection I used|
This is a picture of the bottom and side with a handmade flowers hot glued onto each side.
Next, I hot glued string pearls to all around the edges and glued three Mulberry flowers in the opposite two corners of the base and a couple of flat back pearls to remaining two corners.
Cute on your desk for photos, to-do notes or phone numbers, etc.
It reminds me of an old time rolodex.
This item would be nice for teachers gifts or school fundraisers. You could make a masculine version for male teachers and using a more masculine print paper and jute or twine along the edges. Then glue tiny footballs, baseballs. fishing lures or keys, etc. to the base.
