School Holiday Fun - More Post-It-Note Books

Earlier this week my niece and nephew came
to play in my craft room - yay!!!

Whenever I can't think of what craft to actually do,
the Big Shot embossing machine usually comes
to the rescue.

So we made Post-It-Note covers - based on 
Tim Holtz 'painted industrial' technique as
described in the post below.

Chloe's book is on the left - and instead of using
paint to colour her cover, she used alcohol inks.
She decided to tie some gold coloured fibres around it too.

Aaron used black paint on his and added a couple of
little bulldog clips.

Didn't they do well!
Here they are with their finished items.

I only finished my one today, and I used 
alcohol inks too

It was looking quite opulent and exotic so I
added some self adhesive rhinestones and a tassle.

Now I had better get my thinking cap on
for when they next visit .....
watch this space!

Thanks for looking :)

You taught them well - they are worthy of any adult crafter. Love your pink one - makes me think of saris. Can't remember if you have a gelli plate but I bet they'd love that.
