I had to make a present for my friend... this is what I came up with...!
I absolutely adore this notebook! ...and so does the person that it was intended for (I think)
at least, I would LIKE to think that...
enjoy the tutorial!
and the gift cost me £1.50 btw
Once they were stuck down, and I was waiting for the glue stuff to dry (I used PVA on some of them because I didn't have enough D-S-S-T left). So I cross-stitched her name (UROOJ) using cross stitching material and thread (coloured for the name and for the plants by the side). You could use paper and draw their name on if you wanted to.
I then arranged the buttons on the front of the notebook, and swapped and switched different ones until I was happy. (I asked an expert's opinion too...from my mum!)
Haha! Once I was happy with what it looked like, I stuck each button down using a tiny blob of Bostik glue
(the picture isn't what Bostik looks like btw)
Whn the glue had dried, I just stuck a piece of plain paper on the inside part of the brown front cover (to hide any raw edges from the ribbons that had been folded over).
If that didn't make sense, then to make it easier, I uploaded a picture opposite, and where it says 'Field Notes', is where I stuck the paper. On that side. :)
