Chalkboard or Notebook?

Hello Fellow Crafters and Friends,

I wanted to share sweet little project I made for an exhange.  I liked it so much, it was pretty tough sending it out.  I used the Cuttlebug with a Sizzix die and thought it just turned out sweet.




I had purchased this awesome fabric for a seat cover in our car, where Pumpkin always places her feet, and found out it is actually CHALKBOARD FABRIC.... cool huh??!!  The flowers are made of a Mary Englebright fabric that I had purchased YEARS ago when I was thinking about quilting... as you can see that didn't happen.  The flowers were so much fun to make and so easy peasy!! 

So I hot glued the Chalkboard fabric to the front of the notebook along with the flowers.  I used ATG tape for the ribbon, it seemed to be easier for me to make the ruffle effect that way.

Well I hope you enjoyed.  It really was fun to make and I think I will be doing more as gifts for spring.
Happy Crafting.
