I cut the cover from Leather Paper and put together according to the directions on the packaging.
I adhered patterned cardstock, doilies and lace to the cover. The Tim Holtz Paper doll I added a set of printable butterfly wings that I had leftover from another project and I inked a Bookplate Diecut with Beach ColorBox Blends, added a printed "tidbits" sentiment and Dew Drops to finish the cover.
I added eyelets to dress up the holes before running elastic trim through to hold store bought notebooks.
I sewed a button to the cover and used cording for the closure. Also as you can see I tried my hand at using a hand held sewing machine to add "sloppy" stitching to the cover. I was going to do more stitching but the sewing machine messed up. 😒
