Stampotique Bee Notebook

Today I'm back with another Stampotique project. I used that piece of pattern paper that I created a few weeks back with the Hexagon pattern on it to create a little 3 x 3 notebook. I love having a notebook to jot down notes and sketches. These books are easy to make and the perfect size to keep by the computer. 


Supplies Used:
  • Stampotique stamps (Hexagon & Big Bee)
  • Derwent Inktense Watercolor pencils
  • Archival Jetblack Ink
  • twine
  • cardboard
  • graph/lined paper

Instructions:
  1. Using a stamp positioner, stamp hexagon image repeatedly on white cardstock. 
  2. Color with watercolor pencils
  3. Cut a piece of cardboard to 4 x 8.5 inches. Fold in center.
  4. Cover cardboard with stamped paper. Trim edges.
  5. Trim graph paper and notebook paper down to 4 x 8 inches. 
  6. Place graph paper and notebook paper in cover. Fold and punch holes in spine. 
  7. Loop twine through the holes in the spine. Tie with a bow. 
  8. Stamp bee on white cardstock and color with watercolor pencils. Cut out and add to cover of book.
