Hi Maryanne here from Scrappy Gifts. I’m so happy to be a guest posting at Fun on a Dime. I just love all her fun crafts and recipes. There’s so many things I want to try on there!
Read more about Scrappy Gifts and Me here, but here’s some info to help you get more scrapbooking done: Need to find time to scrapbook more? Get motivated and join in on my Online Crops at my Blog Frog Community once a month to get some of your scrapbook projects done. Prizes, Games and Challenges. The next one is Friday, November 12th 2:00 MST – Tuesday, November 16th 11:59 MST. THIS WILL BE THE LAST CROP OF THE YEAR. **Invite a friend and if they participate, you automatically will get a prize! Your friend just has to leave a comment saying that you invited them.**
Check out some of the fabulous prizes we have so far from the crop sponsors!
- Spiral Notebooks
- Scrapbook Paper and Embellishments
- Paper Cutter
- Craft Glue Dots (they’re stronger)
- 1/8 in Hole Punch (smaller hole than regular hole punch)
- Scrapbook Pliers (usually come in an embellishment tool kit)
Step 1. Using the pliers, unbend the ends of the spiral.
Some spirals are harder to bend than others.
Step 2. Take out the spiral by twisting the spiral out of the holes.
Step 3: Cut your paper to size to match the cover of the notebook. This one was cut down to 4×6.
Step 4: Place glue dots on the back of your paper making sure not glue dots are on the edge of where your notebook’s holes are. It makes it more difficult to hole punch or put the spiral back in when the glue dots are in the way of the holes.
Step 5: Decorate cover how you’d like adhering with glue dots. Glue dots are better than a regular glue stick because it will last longer since the notebook will be handled more than a scrapbook layout would.
Step 6: Turn your cover over and punch holes through the paper, using the existing holes as a guide.
Step 7: Place cover back on top of the rest of the notebook and twist spiral back through the holes making sure the spiral goes through the whole notebook.
Step 8: Bend back the ends of the spiral in place using the pliers so that the spiral stays in place.
Finished ends of the spirals look like this….
Step 9. Now you’re finished! These make great little gifts and can be easily made with any size spiral notebook!
I’d love to see what you make. Link up to my Scrappy Saturdays! Thank you Fun on a Dime for letting me guest blog!
