Book for Notes

My next project using the DCWV Le Tres Chic 12" x 12"  paper stack  is a little book for notes.  It contains a 4" x 6" paper pad.

Front Cover

 The notebook is made with 3 pieces of chipboard cut to desired size.  I covered the outside with the small floral pattern.  On the front cover I used the blue stripe with the Eiffel Tower image
and used one of the cut apart tags that I stamped the word "notes" in black.  On the upper and lower corners I added faux metal corner stickers and used Glossy Accents over the word "notes" and "the city of lights" that I had edged in rhinestones.

Inside has left pocket, pen, magnetic bookmark and paper tablet

4" x 6" tablet is removable  

On the left inside cover I created a pocket to hold loose notes and on the right cover I created a large pocket so the tablet is removable and a new one can be added as needed.  The penholder  is a piece of tan grosgrain ribbon inserted through a slit in the paper and glued behind.  The pen is a gel type pen that you can unscrew which allowed me to insert a small piece of paper inside to match the book.

On the spine I used another sticker from my stash with the word notes on it.  And again I sealed this with Glossy Accents.

Planning to make several of these for gifts in different paper patterns.  They would really make nice teachers gifts or for gift exchanges at work.
