Have I mentioned that I like working on all sorts of little books?
One more can't hurt, right?
I've been thinking for a while now that this business card holder would make an excellent mini album for my purse, so I finally picked it up from Target this week.
I have come to the conclusion many of my projects contain the same basic elements: a Heather Bailey product (in this case, fabric) and Mod Podge. Can you really go wrong with these tools at your side?
After taking the book apart, I began applying Mod Podge, which allowed me to adhere the fabric (pre-cut to fit) to the front cover.
I pulled loose strands of fabric along the edges to encourage fraying.
Then, I applied a top coat of Mod Podge.
While the glue dried, I sewed buttons onto the elastic that wraps around the front.
Once it was almost dry (because you know that I am not patient enough to wait), I put it back together, pictures included.
I will be pulling this out to show everyone my beautiful book - I mean, my kids. My beautiful kids.
