These are great to tuck in your purse or give as a little gift.
Each of these covers started as shiny metallic gold card stock from Worldwin. I embossed the paper and then colored it with StazOn. I love how rich the colors turned out.
Here's the supply list for the blue one:
StazOn Midnight Blue and Azure
Spellbinders 12-1005 Circles Impressabilities
Spellbinders S4-200 Flower Bouquet
Spellbinders S4-230 Labels Six
3M Post It note pad - 3" x 4"
Basic Grey magnet
Sanding block and makeup applicator.
I started with a piece of gold metallic cardstock 3 1/16" x 11". I scored it at 3", 3 7/16", 7 1/2", 8 15/16". I cut the flap edge about 2 1/4" from last fold. Then I embossed it placing the edge of the Impressabilities along a fold line, repeated until it was completely embossed. I rubbed Azure StazOn over some areas and then added Midnight Blue. I sanded it a bit to remove color on the embossed pattern. I cut a liner of light weight cardstock. I put the cover through my Xyron with permanent adhesive. I applied the lining paper to the cover, working from one end towards opposite end and making the folds as I went. Once it was all together and folded well, I used the same Labels Six die template to cut the curved edge of the lining to match the previously cut edge. (alternate way: glue lining and cover together before cutting shaped edge. Then cut both pieces together for flap.) To hold it shut, I glued on a thin magnet to flap and bottom cover.
It was made to fit a 3" x 5" note pad. I used Spellbinders 12-1006 Floral and Stone Impressabilities for embossing and S4-233 Labels Nine to cut the flap edge.
