Using the same technique I had shown here, I turned a dollar store notebook into a cute little heart shaped Valentine’s gift.
Tip: After cutting the pages, I used sand paper to get rid of the little loose pieces of paper. I was pleasantly surprised at how well this step worked.
I then traced the shape of the book onto a piece of red felt, allowing some extra felt to wrap over the edges.
It was a cloudy day, so I decided to photograph the book outside for better lighting…
…and while taking the pictures it started to snow.
Do you notice the little white snowflakes against the red background…
I am making a couple of these little notebooks for Isabella’s best friends. They are going to make sweet little Valentine gifts but they could also make a sweet teacher’s gift.
There is a certain someone I know that would love this little book if it was covered with beautiful vintage music sheets, some old lace and perhaps a perfectly imperfect rusty old key as embellishment. I can picture it now…..sigh!
Red, sweet and pretty…sounds like the perfect craftberry to pick and enjoy, and I hope you did!
Have a beautiful week!
I’m looking at some great crafts at these linky parties
