This is a fantastic and practical project, and will make an ideal gift for mom on Mother's Day. We will start by making the tear-off notebook first.
Start by cutting out the number of pages you are going to need for your note book. You will determine the size of your paper according to your project. Remember to cut all your pages exactly the same size. Also cut out a backing for your notebook from cardboard, this must be the same size as your pages.
Stack all your pages neatly on top of each other, making sure the backing is at the bottom.
Use the pegs to secure your stacked paper.
Smear the clear drying glue (such as wood glue) all over the top edge of your pages, making sure that all the pages will stick to each other. Set aside to dry.
While the note book is drying, it is time to start on the handbag.
Place your handbag on t your pretty patterned paper, trace it and then cut out the handbag shape from the paper.
Cover your wooden handbag with double sided tape, and then place your cut-out patterned paper onto the handbag cutout. The double sided tape should keep it in place.
Create a loop using the ribbon and stick it to the back of the notebook. This is for your pen.
Now you can glue your note book into place. Add some more pretty patterned paper, flowers, beads or embellishments of your choice to add texture and you are done.
A perfect gift for mom this Mothers Day!
