Hello everyone and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner.
I'm glad you stopped by because today I am a Guest Designer on the Twine it up with Trendy Twine Blog and I've got a sweet project to share with you....
* I used my Spellbinders "Grand Scalloped Squares" die to create my notebook covers from lightweight cardboard.  I also used the die to cut some pretty patterned paper to cover the cardboard and to cut my inside pages.
* The sweet little blue bird and musical notes are from the Silhouette Online Store.
* Sentiment is from the "Life is Good" stamp set by My Creative Time
* After decorating my cover, I used my Cinch to put my little notebook together.
* The beautiful twine at the top of notebook is called Blue Berry - isn't it a pretty shade of blue?
* I cut 2 strips of Blue Berry Twine about 5 inches long and tied them to each wire at the top of my notebook.  I repeated that process 2 more times to give the twine a nice full look.
* After tying all my twine, I trimmed everything evenly.

Here's a better look at this pretty twine....

Pretty, huh?

Well, that's about it for me today.  As always, thanks so much for stopping by. I always look forward to your visits and sweet comments!  Be sure to stop by Annie's Paper Boutique (Home of Trendy Twine) and check out the newest twine colors and current sales!

Until next time,
