Hello my fellow creators. I decided to do something a bit different for this week’s video. I am planning a party and thought an altered mini composition book would be a nice party favor.
The mini composition books I used came in a pack of three from the Dollar Tree. I chose to use the “In Bloom” paper pad by Recollections. I cut the patterned paper at 3″ x 5″ for the front and back covers. I then rounded the corners (being careful of the directional paper). I used score tape to attach the patterned paper to the front and back covers, aligning the edge of the paper to the black spine binding. I then cut the overlapping paper at the corners. Once this was done, I folded the corners and edges in to the inside cover, attaching with liquid glue. I used some mini clips (also from the Dollar Tree) to hold the corners down while the glue dried. Once the outer covers were attached, I moved to the inside covers. I cut the inside covers from pink card stock at 4.25″ x 3″, rounding the corners as well. I then attached them to the inside cover, being careful not to get to close to the inside edge. Using the scrap piece of patterned paper (3″x2″) I rounded one corner and attached it to the front inside cover, creating a pocket for a gift card. I then added some ribbon just to give it the finishing touch. I think these will make cute party favors and am off to make another two dozen 🙂
