1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: Cute lil notebooks! Now with TUTORIAL! (img heavy) on: September 04, 2011 02:44:29 PM
Hey! I'm sorry for replying so late after the original tutorial, but I have a couple of questions. These are individual sheets of paper, not folios/signatures? And you're gluing them directly to the spine? Your books look so great, but I worry that they would fall apart. How do they hold up? Is it the PVA glue that keeps them together? Should I not bother to try with another kind of glue?

Can the bowl withstand a lot of things being held in it? Looks so delicate. I think this is the next craft I am going to be doing at work.

I made a small one recently and it is a bit delicate. I have just been using it to put jewelry in.

CUFF BRACELETS!! Genius! Now I just have to find out how to do that.... any ideas? x

Well...it depends a bit on how thick the tape you used is.  I think I would back it with another piece of tape if it is the thinner kind. Then sew it down to a fabric base of some sort. Make sure you increase the stitch length a bit, or if your doing it by hand, keep the stitches a bit far apart. The closer they are together, the more likely it is to rip the tape. Then just add a snap. You might be able to just put a few layers of tape on the back to make it thicker and to protect the picture and then add a snap. But I think I would add a bunch of tape where the snap bits go to make it less likely to rip out. Best of luck..and post what you do please.  I would love to see it Grin

OO and folks at the on going ATC swap have been making all kinds of cool cards with this technique.  SO it would work for any kind of paper crafting too.

That's an excellent idea! You could also do bangles! If you have on that's an appropriate width you can just tape it right on and perhaps seal it.

Thanks Trekky!

sweatereyes, I have not tried crayons over other paintings. That's an excellent idea though. I think something really cool would be to get paintings from a thrift store or garage sale or something and melt crayons over that! I can't paint so the extent of any canvas I painted myself would probably be a solid color background. It may affect the paint but you can test it on a small part or make a sample with the paint to test first. If I do something like that I will definitely let you know how it turns out. :]

I'm insanely jealous! I make art pieces with crayons. Here's an example:

Craftster image hosting rotated the photo for some reason but you get the idea.... I hot-glued the crayons to a canvas then heated them with a heat gun.

I'm not sure if there's an offer what you have swap going on right now, but if there is, this would be a perfect thing to swap. You could group them into a few pieces per item and get a ton of things you need in return!

Those are quite lovely. I always prefer simplicity, and the rustic style is really very beautiful.

What a lovely way to reuse old greeting cards! I have a tendency to save them all for papercraft, and then never use them. Thanks so much for the tutorial, this is something I'll definitely be trying.

Those are great. My favorites are the first and third sets. What do you seal them with?

I did the Altering Papercrafts Supply Swap way back when... and I had just come on here to suggest another round. I'm so sad I missed this one! Hopefully everyone will want another round quite soon!
