TN Spread by Stefanie Ried

Wednesday, October 27, 2021

  Hello and welcome to a new project by me, Stefanie Ried! Sometimes it takes very little to beautify a page or a project. Do you feel the same way? I was enamored with this narrow strip of paper with mini little colorful buttons. This strip is included 2 times on Paper 23 - once in the middle of the paper and once as the barcode strip. I immediately fell in love with them. I also had a photo to go with it in my mind. I've been looking for a long time for the right motifs for this photo of many Chucks. I decided to create a spread in my Traveler's Notebook from my trip to Chile.

Additionally I added a pocket behind the photo. In this one is another booklet with the story and the photo of my souvenir from this beautiful country. The paper with the stars, Paper 10, matched perfectly with my new yellow shoes.

I first fussy cut the little buttons with fine-tipped scissors. Then I punched the holes with a mini hole punch. I applied Glossy Accents to each button so they look more like plastic and are more stable. The gloss also makes the colors look more vibrant.

When the buttons were dry, I used matching colored thread for the holes. I attached the yarn to the back of the buttons with mini glue dots then added them into the TN with small 3D glue dots.

I glued the photo to the opposite page. Behind it the notebook is hidden.

I made it a little smaller. A small slip pocket holds the journaling. I then decorated with a few bits & pieces from Bungalow Lane. All done!

See you next time!
