I opened my box quickly while getting ready, saw it was oriental and read that there was 4 metres of red card..... I wondered why and then realised it was red CORD!
When I got back home after my shopping trip.... Sorry hospital trip (my hospitals are both nearly nice shops) I looked at the box quickly while my husband went to get the Chinese for dinner and laughed when I saw the fortune cookie which I put on his place (when he got in I told him to 'eat the f***ing cookie, owner not waitress' from Mickey Blue Eyes).
The kit contained everything to make a little note book. I've just made mine and it took an hour to make (I did it while my sister was on her driving lesson).
I did mine a little different and perforated the paper so I can tear the pages out if I like.
|This is what came in the kit, plain paper, string, patterned card and a bamboo skewer.|
|The paper and card after cutting to size|
|Perforating each piece of paper for the inside of the book|
|I then had to make holes in each piece of card and paper and used the needles from box 3 (which was really handy and meant I didn't have to get my sewing box out). I used the square of foam I use for stamping as a base to help push the needle through.|
|I then used the curved needle to sew the thread through the pad. The circular one was really easy to thread through.|
|My finished notebook! I knotted it on the back and glued it and then the knot came undone :o( so got the trusty pin-flair silicone glue out!|
