Then it occurred to me -- I have a Bind It All gathering dust behind the couch. It wouldn't take much for me to cut some cardstock and bind the class lessons into a notebook. Actually, it has been awhile since I have altered anything, and there are other supplies gathering dust, so why not break them out and use them too?
First, though, I need to remember how to use my Bind It All. I have discovered that YouTube is an invaluable resource for "how to" videos, like this one.
So, I went to work. Creating a mask from an underutilized Quickutz die and using FolkArt acrylic paint, Pink Paisely pattern paper, and gel medium, it did not take long to alter a piece of chipboard to make the face of my notebook. A few minutes later it was bound and . . . Wallah!
