With graduation fast approaching (it was May 12 for us and most schools around us), I was needing some girly gifts. I decided to make some address books for the recipients to keep track of their friends and family. I realize that nowadays we have internet, but I’m sure they will have thank you’s to write, birthday cards to send, etc.
A local store had these small notebooks. The covers are soft, but I knew I wanted to alter them. Tombow’s Glue Stick is perfect for adhering the patterned paper to the notepads. You want to get a VERY good coverage, so that in humid weather (such as we have) the paper doesn’t pop up where there is no adhesive. So go ahead and cover the WHOLE piece with the glue stick.
To adhere those skinny letters, Mono Adhesive Dots is the perfect adhesive to use! You just add the adhesive to the back, adhere to the front of your project and then rub away any excess adhesive. I love using this adhesive for small pieces like this!
I used Mono Adhesive Permanent for the ribbon and tabs and Mono Multi Liquid Glue for the ric rac. All Inky Antic images are colored with Irojiten Pencils and blended with Gamsol.
Here is one I did in blues.
and last but not least, here is one in pink
I hope this gave you some ideas for graduation gifts.
