Bird Cage Notebook

I'm really loving making something other than cards at the moment. Don't get me wrong it's not that I don't enjoy making cards but sometimes I feel like I'm stuck in a rut and need to explore other crafty options. These little Kraft notebooks are really cheap and make nice little gifts.

The notebook was covered with Lost & Found Papers from My Minds Eye. I sponged over the birdcage die cut with Distress Inks. The lace and seam binding were also inked with Distress Ink to knock back the white and give an aged look. I added some faux stitching and some scrabble tiles that were free with a magazine the other week. Finally I used my new Martha Stewart Photo Corner punch on the corners and spritzed the whole lot with Glimmer Mist..

Thanks for stopping by.
