Chevron Cardstock Altered Notebook

Recently, we celebrated both our little girls birthday. What I wanted to make was a little notebook where our guests could pen down their message for my little girls to ponder upon when they're older. 

As with every little girl's birthday, all things glittery is a must :) So what I did was, to alter a little book that you can get from any dollar store and bling up the front cover with the very lovely chevron cardstock. 

 Here's what my project looks like:

Some close-ups

1) Cut out a piece of chevron cardstock to cover the entire front page of the book leaving about 0.5 inches all around

2) Next, cut out a smaller piece of a different colour and use an edge punch to create a pretty border (you can also use one of the cutesy border stickers by Doodlebug ;))

3) Layer some stickers and make your own banner using the same chevron cardstock and add some bling and twine

Materials Used:
Item:4087 12x12 lily white chevron sugar coated cardstock
Item:4088 12x12 gray chevron sugar coated cardstock
Item:4078 12x12 bubblegum chevron sugar coated cardstock
Item:4185 sugar shoppe this & that sticker
Item:3208 doodle twine - bumblebee
