With graduation fast approaching (it was May 12 for us and most schools
around us), I was needing some girly gifts. I decided to make some address books
for the recipients to keep track of their friends and family. I realize that
nowadays we have internet, but I’m sure they will have thank you’s to write,
birthday cards to send, etc.
A local store had these small notebooks. The covers are soft, but I knew I
wanted to alter them. Tombow’s Glue Stickis perfect for adhering the
patterned paper to the notepads. You want to get a VERY good coverage, so that
in humid weather (such as we have) the paper doesn’t pop up where there is no
adhesive. So go ahead and cover the WHOLE piece with the glue stick.
To adhere those skinny letters, Mono Adhesive Dotsis the perfect adhesive to
use! You just add the adhesive to the back, adhere to the front of your project
and then rub away any excess adhesive. I love using this adhesive for small
pieces like this!
I used Mono Adhesive Permanent for the
ribbon and tabs and Mono Multi Liquid Glue for the ric rac.

Gamsol. Here is one I did in blues.

I hope this gave you some ideas for graduation
