Boss Babe

I have an exciting new project to  share this week for you all! It's a traveler's notebook featuring the fashion boss stamp set from kindred stamps.

For this project I used:

-4 sheets of 12 x 12 scrapbook paper.

- Guts of a dollar store calendar and notebook

- Plain white card stock

- Elastic cord

- Embroidery floss with a needle

- Laminator with 1 laminating sheet

- Stamp set

- Zig markers

My notebook and calendar were 5x 7 inches, all of my measurements are based around that. All my notebook covers were cut to 10 1/2 X 7 1/4 and scored at 5 1/4 inches. The decorative spine papers were 1 ½ x 7 ¼ inches scored down the center. My pages for my blank notebook were 10 x 7 inches scored at 5

The notebooks need 3 binding holes along the center fold. 1 center and 1 inch in from each end. My measurements for my binding holes on the inside pages of the notebook are 1 inch, 3 ½ inches and 6 inches and the binding holes for the notebook covers are 1 inch 3 5/8 inch and 6 ¼ inches .

To bind the notebooks start your embroidery floss in the center hole on the inside of the notebook go though all of the page and cover and into the top hole from the outside of the notebook. Then from top hole back into the center hole. Now on the outside go into the bottom thorough the cover and all the pages. The end is now inside the notebook at the bottom. Bring up to the center and tie the two ends together and trim off any extra.

Once all my notebook were bound I stamped and mounted my sentiment labels on to the covers. For the Main cover I stamped and colored the Boss Babe onto a 2 ¾ x 3 ¾ piece of white card stock.

Outside Main cover is 11 1/8 x 8 inches scored at 5, 5 ¼, 5 ½, 5 ¾ and 6 inches

Outside decorative spine is 3x 8 inches ( added to center of outside main cover before scoring)

Once you have scored and decorated the cover it needs to be laminated. Binding holes are going to be place a ½ in from on the top and bottom on the 1, 3, 5 score lines you need 1 binding hole on the center score line in the center at 4 inches for the elastic closure.

Start your elastic on the bottom right hole go in from the outside and up to the top right, then to the top center and down to the bottom center, then to the bottom left and up to the top left and into the top center. Tie off and trim. Then bring the other end that is on the outside bottom right in to the bottom center and tie off and trim.

The center hole is for the elastic closure, measure out enough elastic to go around the cover and tie the two end together then thread the loop through the center hold from the inside.

Place the notebooks into the elastic binding at their centers and you are all done.
