Project Details
Notebook - I bought a sunflower notebook at Michael's for $2.  I covered the notebook front and back with 3 different Anna Griffin Designer Papers.  I thought this would be pretty simple.  Not so!  I used Yes paste to adhere the paper to the notebook.  It give you some wiggle room, but is a little messy.  I then added ribbon and a doily, the image and sentiment.  Her dress is paper pieced.

Pencil Cup - Tin can covered in designer paper, pearls, ribbon, bling.  I added the image and sentiment.  The pearls were a real challenge.  I used Aleene's thick tacky glue.  I also lined the inside of the can to give it a more finished look.  My hubby's suggestion and I am so glad that I did.  I also added felt to the bottom of the can, so it will be soft on a desk and also a more finished look.  I painted the top and bottom of the can with folk art acrylic paint.  It took quite a few coats.

Post It Note Holder - I made this myself.  Very easy to do.  I covered the entire post it with designer paper and added the image to the inside. I made the rose on the outside with spellbinders dies.

I hope you enjoyed this project.  It was really fun to make.
