Another Notebook Folio

 Morning and it's our first challenge of the year at Scrapping4fun I made another notebook folio using the tutorial HERE.

I used more of the P.papers from The Works,the ribbon, tags and metal brad from stash.

The little pocket inside contained a couple more folded pieces of paper to add things and I made a long thin notepad to tuck in the inside pocket.

A couple of postcards tucked into a side pocket, I made another notebook with the butterfly paper on the front.

the pocket on the pack was made with a toilet roll inner and covered with P.paper with an ATC inside.

This is the back with another little ATC tucked inside and the little heart just slides onto the cut out holding it in place.

This is the notebook I made, I sewed all the pages together, some copy paper,a couple of doilys,book pages and P,paper,did some stamping on some of the papers. This has been claimed by my grandaughter Hollie for her friends birthday and we added some pics of them both from the past three years they have been friends since going to the same High School, the notebook was then sewn into the spine of the cover.I love making these and more oddments used too-not that you can tell!

Wow. I'm agog. I always love these notebook folios and this one is made up so prettily with the papers, pages, and pockets. A toilet paper roll! Who would've thought it could look so good? Love that you stitched the pages together. Good idea there. Your daughter's friend will be so pleased to receive this. I'll peek at the link. I've always been intrigued. Thanks!
