Hello Friends, Rachel here again. I am a huge fan of Travellers Notebooks and I decided to make my own over to insert my TNs in. I have used my September Farmhouse kit which is so pretty and perfect for a Midori cover.
Travellers notebooks being a standard size makes it easy to cut the cover, the tricky bit making your holes for the elastic to go through. You need to make five small holes in total. two close together at the top and then another two at the bottom close together and then one more in the centre of these sets of holes.
I firstly made my tassel (of sorts), The gold leaf pin was perfect to add one of the small die cut tags, I added small holes to a round sentiment die cut and heart die cut and to finish off I added a gold heart puffy sticker.
I added the pretty floral bloom with foam tape adding some white nuvo jewel drops. I added a sentiment die cut from the kit and then to finish off I added a white punched butterfly ( with foam tape) and glued some of the sequins also included in the kit. Yes of course a splatter of black color shine!!
I have added two pockets, a larger one and then a smaller one whereI added another small decorative pockets wit a sentiment die cut. I embellished both pockets using inspirational quotes and some wooden butterflies left over from my August kit.
When choosing your front cover paper, if it is double sided make sure you want the color/pattern, I loved the black aztec print paper and it contrasted my pockets beautifully.
I have added machine sewing to my pockets, adding it before I attached to my Midori cover.
I think I could become addicted to making these, they are simple, quick and it gives you a wonderful blank canvas to get creative in making your own Midori covers.
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope this has inspired you in some way! See you again soon.
