Wintergreen Notebook & Cute Flower Clips

Today I thought I would share some projects that can be created using some of the beautiful double-sided designer papers that are on special this month. Since these papers are so nice and heavy, they are great for altering a number of items. The little monogrammed notebook was covered in some of the Wintergreen paper. I think these are my favorite papers right now! I love the colors...they are suitable for the holidays, yet can be used for any occasion I think. I just brushed a thin layer of decoupage medium (I like Royal Coat) on the covers and laid my paper in place. It dries pretty quickly, so I was able to apply more decoupage medium on top of the paper. (I use a foam brush to apply the decoupage medium) This seals the paper and acts as a protective cover to guard against fingerprints and dirt...they can just be wiped away. I gave this little notebook and bag of goodies to the November hostess of my stamp club. I made these cute flower clips a while ago to give as a little treat to my stamp club group, but I kept forgetting! I finally remembered to give them out at this last club meeting. I punched out the flowers shapes when I was visiting with my upline one day...she has a Cuttlebug and I never tried one before. (I know...what rock have I been hiding under, right?!) Thanks Karman!

I used some plain, medium weight coasters and some of the monochromatic Prints Designer papers in Rose Red & So Saffron. I was able to easily punch a hole through the coasters using my crop-a-dile and then added a Rich Regal brad to the center of each one. I glued the largest flower layer onto the big clip and then added the other 2 with pop dots. A bit of Wild Wasabi double-stitched ribbon tied to the clip finished these off. Cute, huh? I've got several projects in the works right now using more of these beautiful papers. Will share more soon!
