I needed some little notebooks that would fit inside my small handbag and thought I would decorate the covers with some embossed paper. When the scraps of embossed paper I had weren't big enough, I decided to create my own. I have shown an example here of embossing (green) and debossing (red) - it gives a slightly different look. 



Products Used:

Bazzill Basics Cardstock:

1-107E Quartz

Spellbinders:

 Es-016 Cabbage Roses embossing folder 

 Other Materials Used:

VersaMagic ink 
Acrylic paint 
Twine 
Sewing machine 
Clear embossing powder 

 Step 1



Emboss the cardstock. 

 Step 2 



While the cardstock is still in place in the embossing folder, gently rub some Versamagic ink over the bumps created. 

Step 3 



Sprinkle some clear embossing powder over the entire sheet and use a heat gun to melt. 

 Step 4 



Paint over the whole sheet with some acrylic paint. 

 Step 5 



Use a baby wipe or wet cloth to wipe the acrylic paint off the embossed areas. 

 Step 6



 Cut several sheets of paper to size, centre them on the back of your embossed and painted cardstock, and sew right down the centre with a sewing machine. These little books will have a tendency to spring open for a while, so I have tied them with some twine to keep them closed.
