I made this little jobber for my sister for her birthday - well, actually, I made her a bigger one and I made this one for myself.  I bought a little blank book at Micheal's, along with two stamps - one with writing and one with a little square design.  I already had the Sculpey and the leather string and beads, but that's just craft hoarding me. =)

So obviously the front is just stamped.  Easy enough.  The medallion, I pressed the stamp into a black stamp pad a couple of times, then stamped it hard into the clay.  I cut it out of about half a centimeter thick (I couldn't think of it in inches =) )  and baked it according to the Sculpey instructions.  I then glued the leather string with the beads attached underneath the medallion with my glue gun. The inside is obviously just lined with paper - to get it through the holes I took the cover off of the wire, glued it on, and used a paintbrush to punch through the holes, then trimmed off the extra that poked through with my Exacto Knife.   The back inside cover is lined with paper too, and the back leather is glued beneath it.  That's about it.  Very simple, but it looks nice.  I'm hoping to get more advanced soon. =)

When you can't see the pics just "Right" click on the image square w/ the x. Then click on "properties". Highlight the address "url" and press you "Ctrl"  + "c" keys to copy.   Click on the address bar and press "Ctrl" + "V" keys to paste.  That should open up the page where the picture is. When you're done looking at it just click the "Back" button on the toolbar to come back to crafster.org.

That works most of the time.

thats really nice - i like it. the medallion charm would be good also on the "book thong" bookmark idea in another section.
