Hi everyone! Today I two projects in one blog post I would like to share. I created an ink pen clip holder and decorated mini notebooks for the Woodsy Autumn Planner. You can find the Woodsy Autumn blog post HERE in case you missed that.
For the first project I’ll start with directions for the ink pen holder.
I cut three medium, three small flowers and two leaves from Crinoline fabric with the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts, inked a glass tray with Sunshine and Golden Blend Inks and add water to ink. I laid each flower into the ink mixture, removed and let dry. I cleaned the glass tray off and ink with Leaf and Frog Blends Inks, add water to ink, laid both leaves into mixture, removed and let dry.
I inked Art Daubers with Butter and Candied Yam Ink and lightly ink the edges of each flower. I added a drop of Zip Dry Adhesive to the center of each flower. Laid each flower on top of each other, pinch in the center, shaped and added a gem to the center of the flower. I folded each leaf down the center and edge with Candied Yam ink, adhered each leaf to the back of the flower with a loop of hemp cording.
I cut a 1 7/8 inch piece of stretch elastic and adhere each end with Fabri-Tac adhesive to each side of a binder clip. But sure to tuck the elastic up under the “rolled” metal of each side of the clip.
I adhered the flower to elastic loop and let dry.
I inked a glass tray with Melon and Golden Blend Inks, add water and lay the mini flower diecuts into the mixture, remove and let dry. Ink edges of the mini flowers with Butter ink.
I cleaned the glass tray and ink with Leaf Blends Ink, add water and lay the leaf sprig into ink mixture. Remove and let dry. Ink edges of the leaf sprig with Mint ink.
I adhered a monogram to one of the notebooks and add a mini flower and cut one leaf from the leaf sprig and adhere both on top of the monogram. Glue a sequin and a gem to the center of the flower.
The other wreath notebook apply a drop of glue to the center of the medium flower and pinch and shape. Add a sequin and a gem to the center of the flower along with a leaf from the sprig and loop some hemp cording and glue both the front of the notebook. Also add a mini flower with a gem in the center of the flower next to the medium flower.
The other two notebooks I stamped the words “ideas” and “notes” with the Leather Ink onto patterned cardstock, cut out and adhere one word to each cover.
Next I slid each of the notebooks underneath the elastic cording of the planner.
I clipped the ink pen holder to one of the notebooks and added an ink pen.
As always if you have any questions about these projects please let me.
Next I cut Tan Paper Leather to fit the inside of the journal and adhered with Fabri-Tac adhesive. This will make the journal sturdier.
Next I cut a piece of pleather to fit over the paper leather and adhered to the inside.
I strung the spine with elastic cording and the closure I threaded elastic cording through the button and then sewed to the middle of the spine. I also added bits of lace, trim and ribbon to the spine.
I purchased a pack of three mini composition notebooks from the Dollar Tree and covered the front and back with cardstock.
I used an assortment of chipboard embellishments from my stash to decorate the covers.
I cut a file folder down and created a place to hold stitchy notes and washi tape samples.
I cut from white cardstock the Credit Card Sleeve Diecut, embossed with the Daisy Wreath Embossing Folder and lightly inked over the embossed images. I adhered the sleeve to the folder, cut a tag to fit the slot and wrapped washi tape around the tape in case I wanted to decorate the planner on the go.
I used motivational saying on the covers of the notebooks.
As always if you have any questions about this planner please let me know. Also if you haven’t had a chance to see what Eileen’s Inspiration Team has been up to you can find those posts HERE, HERE and HERE.
