Stellar Dressform Altered Pocket Notebook

Happy Monday!

Today I have a "Stellar" project to share with you. I am a list maker and always in need of another cute notebook to write the funny things my kids say, project ideas, my to-do list, etc. With a few Accents and some Embossing Enamel, you can have a fun notepad, too!

Here's what you'll need from the shop:

Globecraft & Piccolo supplies:
Vintage Dressforms Accents (A125) - dressform & large flourish

other supplies:
pocket notepad (3"x5")
word sticker (American Crafts)
ribbon, black
tulle, bits of white
script text patterned paper (Bo Bunny)

This is the before shot of the notepad. I love the black and white color scheme. The zebra pattern...not so much. Carefully bend both of the end wires, so you can 'unscrew' the coil from the paper. Hang onto the coil, if you want to use it again.

Trace the cover onto the back of your patterned paper. (I traced the holes and used the small hole on the Crop-a-dile to punch through the paper.) Randomly sprinkle Poodle Skirt and heat. Let cool.

Using the Enamel Powder Adhesive, 'ink' up your dressform and both flourishes. Sprinkle on Micro Black. Heat and repeat at least one more time. (I dipped and heated 3 times.)

Time to put it all together! Twist the coil back into place. Using Glastique, adhere all of the Accents. Adhere ribbon and tulle. Apply word sticker. Done!

These are so quick to make. I have a few more teacher gifts to make and you can be sure these notebooks will be included!

Inky hugs,

Awesome notepad, love how the dress form looks against the new background. Wonderful embellishments too.
