I'm going to share this project that I did right before Christmas. My friend wanted a journal, I have made her ones in the past, but this time she wanted something she could remove or add pages.
So I was thinking a binder, I found one that had an insert cover and went to work.
I used Bohemia papers that I got when I was in SLC. They are so pretty and the price was really right. I added some corner flourishes from Fancy pants, cut a T with my Cricut Expressions machine. I then ran the T through my xyron machine and adhered micro beads and coral glitter to it. Super shiny. I finished it off with velvet ribbon, (also run through the xyron machine) and primas with crystal brad centers. I also distressed the papers a little more. I really like how this turned out and plan to make more.

My daughter wants to make a cookbook so we will be doing a cooking theme one, I think that will be fun.

I think these are so cool, for idea books, cookbooks, teen binders. Just makes the boring a little jazzier.

I used my ATG gun to adhere the paper to the inside of the binder.
