My Favourite Things - Altered Notebook


The challenge at The Shabby Tea Room this week is to use your favourite papers and embellishments, couldn't be easier really. So here my list of favourites, white on white, embossing and home made flowers all brought together on an altered note book. I'll be using the notebook to prepare for the Bible class I teach at church so as it will be used weekly I wanted to do a fabric flower that wouldn't be so easily damaged through wear and tear. I followed this Wired Ribbon Flower tutorial to make it, but I cheated and glued it together rather than stitched. It was very easy to do, the only thing I'd say is don't pull the wire too hard when you're gathering the ribbon cos it might break and then you'll have a job to try and retrieve the end - don't ask me how I know! I'll leave you with a close up of the flower, have a good evening.
