Minibook Covers

Mini books get handled a lot more than regular scrapbook pages. And they need to be able to withstand the wear and tear that comes with it.

When I used embellishments on my covers I always use the Best Glue Ever for a strong, lasting hold.

I love that the fine tip on the bottle lets me put just the right amount of glue. Here, I'm using skinny wood alphas and several other wood embellishments. I also use the Best Glue Ever for dimensional alphas, like Thickers, that have a tendency to peel off.

And here's the final cover. This is for a yearly album I do as part of a Shimelle class.  I started with a regular old composition book from Target then added lots of tape, stickers, a flag border and my wooden embellishments.

And no matter how much this book gets used this month, I won't have to worry about the cover at all.

I always use The Best Glue Ever on my Thickers and dimensional alphas. It is a fast, easy and cheap insurance policy!

I love this notebook!

Wow. What a great cover! I think this is such a fun thing to do to those regular old composition notebooks on sale now at the office supply stores!
