Hey it’s Kirsten again, I’ve missed you all dearly! This is the last you will see of my St Patrick’s Day stuff that was featured on Channel 2′s Fresh Living Show. This is one of my favorites. I love notebooks, I have MANY notebooks that serve many purposes. I write my to-do lists in them, grocery lists, ideas and I LOVE them. This allows you to get super unique and personalized with a notebook. I know I have friends that would die for a Diet Coke one ;). Anyhow, I can’t wait to make some out of some old books I bought at the thrift store, I’ll let you know when I finish those beauties :). Oh and I forgot to mention that this was done with my new favorite tool….THE CINCH BINDING MACHINE, which we got from ROBERT’S CRAFTS (ONLY IN UTAH). You can also find the CINCH online.
YOU NEED BINDING COIL (SOLD WHERE CINCH PRODUCTS ARE SOLD), A COVER OF YOUR CHOICE, AND SOME PAPER. HERE IS WHAT THE BINDING COIL LOOKS LIKE UP CLOSE.
TA-DA THIS IS IT. AIN’T SHE PRETTY.
OHHHH HERE’S MY CUTE LITTLE HELPER THAT LIKES TO HELP ME A LOT IT’S Q. AND HERE’S MY SET-UP FOR THE SHOTS. SOMETIMES IT’S FUN TO SEE HOW PEOPLE DO THINGS….HERE’S HOW I DID THIS SHOT. I LOVE THE NATURAL LIGHT BABY, NO FLASH, IT’S THE ONLY WAY TO GO :). “MOM CAN I SIT BY YOU….CAN WE CWAFT?”
THEN YOU STICK THE BINDING ON THE BACK, AND PULL THE LEVER DOWN…..MAGIC (ALTHOUGH IT DID TAKE ME 3 TIMES TO GET IT JUST RIGHT ;).
HAVE A LOVELY ST. PATRICK’S DAY MY FRIENDS
