Hey there people and Happy Tuesday to you! I hope you're having a wonderful day, wherever in the world you may be.
Today I thought I'd share a little DIY project with you that I completed recently. I used some of my latest art work and turned them (plus some printer paper) into a really cute tear able memo pad. I have to confess, I originally got the idea from another blogger's post. I wrote down the how-to steps faithfully in my notepad but forgot to write down the blog I found them on. D'oh! If anyone knows the blog I am thinking of, please let me know so that I can leave a link in this post. It's only right and proper after all :)
Here's the lowdown:
You will need: a computer and printer and paper, images to use, a guillotine (or a steady hand and scissors), mod podge, elastic bands or bulldog clips.
1. Position your images as you want them to appear. I do this in word, as it helps me to size up exactly what size they will print out at better. I chose a set of 5 different images and printed the page itself off 10 times.
Here's how they looked all printed! Let the ink dry a little before ...
2. Cutting your images into strips. You could get all technical here and measure them carefully so they're exactly the same width. I just judged it by eye.
Here we are - looking good so far!
3. Clamp your sheets together tightly using either elastic bands or bulldog clips.
4. Add a generous layer of Mod Podge onto one end. Place something underneath your memo pad to collect drips and elevate the end (or it will stick to wherever you put it!) Now leave to dry for at least an hour.
You have a lovely, handmade tear able memo pad to use at home or give as a gift.
Have a great day people!
