Mini notebooks

Hi everyone,
Whilst surfing to see what other people did with ordinary notebooks, I came across Wanda's works.  I also learned that decorated notebooks are called "altered notebooks".  I was inspired to make these mini ones from My Creative Corner.

I used a strip of faux metallic lace just above the edge of the opening flap.  I stuck it over double sided tape and then sprinkled dark pink glitter over it to cover any exposed tape.  Ofcourse this gives it extra bling !

It fastens with a bit of velcro.
If the cardstock is thick and you crease it well....

...there is no need to use any velcro...they close quite neatly, like the ones above.
A small tip I got from the net.....If you don't have a bone folder, use a butter knife.  I use the latter and the result is fine.
Have an enjoyable day !

I would appreciate your valuable comments.
If you do make anything from my blog and post it on yours please be sure to give me credit and a link back to my blog.
