Hi! After being inspired by Jo's colourful layouts from yesterday I wanted to share this sweet little address book that started life as a £2 wirebound notebook from Borders. To decorate the cover and back I took the book apart by carefully bending the wire binding back and sliding the covers off. I covered the front, back and insides with colourful striped papers and added a strip of co-ordinating paper, I scalloped the edges using my EK Success corner punch and inked all the edges with charcoal chalk ink.
To decorate the front of the address book I used a Heidi Swapp chipboard letter, stamped the letters to make the word friends with teeny tiny alphabet stamps and tied co-ordinating ribbon around the wire binding.
The tabs down the edge of the book were made by cutting white card into roughly 1 inch squares, inking the edges, gluing on a flower punched from patterned paper and using small round alphabet stickers as the flower centres and to indicate each letter of the alphabet. I used my normal office stapler to join the tabs onto the pages of the book.
If you've been inspired I would love to see what you make and create so leave a link to your work in the comments box (leave a link anyway because we are all a little bit nosey and love to visit other people's blogs !!)
Love from Andrea x
