Designer's Choice

This week on Tombow our challenge is Designer's Choice. These are my favorite challenges. Ü It gives us the creative license to really shine and show what we like to do the most.
I thought I would share one of the most popular make--takes I taught at CHA. This was the first time (of course it was only my second time at CHA and first time teaching what I had designed. LOL) that I had a line of gals waiting to take my classes.

For this make-n-take, we altered a composition notebook. Here is a peek at the front.

We also added papers inside the front and back covers as well as covered the back. You can see where we didn't have the inside patterned paper to clear to the binding. This helps the notebook to close.

Here is a close-up of the fabric flower made using Tombow's Mono Multi and Power Tabs:

A closer view of the tabs using Mono Adhesive Permanent (put a tab on the first bage and then every 20 pages after that)
 I hope this inpsires you to create an altered journal. If you do, please let me know as I would love to see it.
