Denim Note Book Cover + Fiskars Giveaway !!



























I wanted to make something different and came up with the idea I would challenge myself to see how many things I could make from an old pair of jeans kindly donated by my brother.

The first project was this wrist cuff using ribbons from Crafty Ribbons.


































Made from a strip cut off one of the legs.


























Now my next project for Fiskarettes UK... a denim note book using one of the pockets.































Just cut a piece from the jeans round one pocket the size you would like your note book to be. next cut two cardboard pieces the same size, cover one with pattern papers on both sides, the other only one side. Glue the denim piece on the front of this one. Punch holes down left hand side to take your wires.


























I bought a cheap A4 lined not book, punched holes as before and cut it down to size to fit my cover and then bound with my wires. Then you can go mad with decorating the front with ribbons, buttons and pearls !!

The pocket is fab for holding your fav pens and scissors ect.....

Now talking about scissors, I have a fantastic pair of designer Fiskars scissors to give away to one lucky person in the UK.

 Designer Scissors (8")

Just add you name to Mr Linky and I will pick a winner on Monday 3rd July !!


hugs Diane xx
