Iron your cotton fabric on the hottest heat setting, use starch (if needed) get all the wrinkles out

Lay your notebook onto the fabric


IMG_5189

Trace around the notebook, and cut, but make sure to leave an extra inch. Then cut out that rectangle.

Cover the backside of the notebook with Mod Podge.

Don’t forget to cover the spine.

Press the glued side on the fabric and let a heavy book rest on it for about 30 minutes or so. Then let it dry for another 45 minutes.

Use a hot glue gun to glue the extra inch we left earlier.

I recommend placing a piece of paper on top of the notebook before placing the book on top of it.

Repeat steps 6-9 on the front side.

CAREFULLY add your magnetic clasp to the jump ring. (the clasp may try and stick to the pliers or jump ring.) Then attach the jump ring to the chain. Next, close the jump ring. Repeat on the other side!

DIY Decoden Phone Case

Supplies

You will need:

  • ModPodge Collage Clay
  • Cabochons (you can get these online from Sophie & Toffee)
  • Rhinestones
  • Sequins
  • Chalk Tiles (these are from Michael’s Craft Store)
  • Clear Phone case (I ordered mine from Amazon)

IMG_2490The ModPodge Collage Clay Comes with three different tips.

 

IMG_2494I chose the star tip because it gives the clay a frosting type look. IMG_2497.JPGUse the clay to cover the case. Do this as if you were frosting a cake.

*personal side note* My bag was hard to work with because the clay was a little stiff, but I eventually got it to come out. IMG_2498After the phone case is covered with the collage clay, press your cabochons and chalkboard tiles into the clay. Make sure to not put too many objects around the camera area. IMG_2499Then add sequins or rhinestones as desired. IMG_2501Let the case dry for about thirty minutes, then cover the sides. IMG_2502Cover the other side, then fill in any open areas.

IMG_2623.jpgThen you are done!
