~ now for the tutorial you have been waiting for ~ 


Start by die cutting 20-30 sheets using the notepad die.  Use copy paper and die cut 3 or 4 at a time to speed things up.  On some of these I stamped grids and lines to the sheets.



Die cut the notepad die again 4-6 times using thick card stock and/or patterned paper  (These will be the dividers)

How many dividers and copy paper will be dependent on the size of jump ring or binder rings you use.

COVER
From card stock cut the largest stitched rectangle die, cut in half. 
Using the notepad die mark with pencil on the inside of each side where the holes are and hole punch. 

Glue and add on patterned paper to the front of the scallop die cut and hole punch again.


With the card stock/patterned paper notepad die cuts glue on tabs.  Some tabs I doubled up for extra interest.

Stack covers, dividers and lined paper together.
Using large jump rings/ or small journal rings feed through holes and close with jewelry pliers.
Attach chain and beads to top jump ring.  Make chain long enough to use as a page marker.
Finish the cover by wrapping 2 thin strips of ribbon leaving enough length to tie a bow.  Glue ribbon in place on back and layer die cuts with more glue to secure ribbon.
For the front add a flag and rounded rectangle die cut, glue in place.  Place ribbon over top and glue down.  Add the stitched label over top with liquid glue.  
Finish with another rounded rectangle, a sentiment and hot glue on a button. 
You can also add the months using the Everyday Calendar and cute images.

PRODUCTS USED

COPIC COLORS

Bird – V01,000,0000,BG00,BG000
PAPER CUTS 
2 x 6″x6″ white card stock
2  3″ x3″ white card stock

Start by cutting two 6″ x 6″ panels of white card stock.  On one of them take 1/8″ or less off two of the sides.  This is your base and will help the lid slide over easier.

Score at 1 1/2″ on all 4 sides of both pieces.  Set lid aside (The panel that wasn’t trimmed down)
Cut the score lines on all 4 sides to form your tabs. (Base)
Cut notches in the tabs to assemble easier.
Trim approximately a 3″ x 3″ piece to fit in the center of your base.  Stamp all over and glue your character on.

Assemble Base

Lid

Score your lid again this time at 1/2″ on all 4 sides.  Your lid will now have 2 sets of score marks.  1/2″ and 1 1/2″ on all the sides.

Cut away the corners marked on photo on all 4 sides.  Cut angles to the remaining tabs.

Run lid through die cutting machine with hexagon die in the center.  Use a stencil to decorate the outer box lid.

Add acetate to the window on the inside of the lid.  Surround in foam tape.
Die cut from a scrap of white card stock the hexagon window again leaving enough space around to fit the center of the box lid.  Approx 3″x3″ 
Fill with shaker bits and assemble shaker.

Add a inked hexagon frame to each side of the window

Assemble lid.

Glue tabs in and fold over and glue the 1/2″ to finish.
Add die cut flowers and sentiment to the box lid.

Tie with ribbon.

Sending bear hugs

This weeks theme is “Thinking of you” over at La-La Land Crafts. I used my favourite bear from the honey bear Stamp Set that was part of the April release.

This was a super simple card to make.

I filled a window box die cut with lots of die cut flowers. I attached it to a die cut fence and added some grass patches around the bottom.

The bear was coloured in Copics and attached with double stacked foam tape.

A sentiment was cantered and added to the top.

I attached my panel to yellow card stock and added to my card base.
