Dino Notebook



My husband gave me a bind it all for my birthday and I just got a chance to try it out today. I made this cute Dinosaur notebook using the Create a Critter cartridge. I used chipboard for the front and back covers of the book. I cut them at a size 8 with the blade setting at 6 and the pressure setting at max with the multicut on. I did this twice for each cover, so it actually made the cut 4 times to ensure that it would cut through the chipboard. I then put my setting back to blade 4 and pressure high for the rest of the cuts. The dinosaur and top layer were cut at a size 8, while his mid section layer was cut at a size 3. I cut 10 white dinosaurs for the inside pages. The owires I used in the bind it all are size 1/2. I added a few embellishments when it was completed: a hair bow, googly eye and some green stickles. I had a little trouble with the punching at the top of my pages, but ended up getting them aligned. I think she turned out cute for my first notebook attempt.
