Altered Paperchase notebook

Good Morning!

I'm nipping a few minutes at the computer before I have to get the children ready for school.....

This little project is a mini notebook from Paperchase
and I covered it with paper from CCW's June kit.
The jar was cut from the papers and I added glossy accents to the hearts.
I coloured the AC Thickers with a Copic marker and wiped off the excess with kitchen roll.
Then layered it on a strip of vellum.

This is the plain notebook .
I removed the black elastic as I thought it would be too stark against the paler papers.

To replace the black elastic,
I measured a length of white 3mm elastic (from Tesco's sewing section) and stapled the two ends with TH mini staples. 

Hope you have a great day
Take care :)

Ps. Phoebe's sports day stayed dry until the last race, yay!

Replacing the elastic?! Aaargh! You are very clever Sarah and I love the jar of hearts. It's our last primary school fair on saturday and all the weather charts are covered in black clouds! You were lucky with Phoebe's sports day! Vicky x
