Hello SRM Stickers Fans! It's Juliana with you here today to share how to alter simple notebooks with SRM Stickers fabulous adhesive vinyl.
I started with two simple notebooks from a local crafts store, Yes, they were cute in their original state, but they really called to me for a little color. That's were SRM's new patterned vinyl came into play! I began by selecting two colors for each notebook and with my niece's favorite colors in mind.
Next, I cut the patterned vinyl to just slightly larger than the size of the notebook. I peeled of the backing paper and slowly adhered the vinyl to the book. I recommend peeling off the backing paper as you go so that you avoid getting bubbles in the vinyl. However, if you do get a bubble, use a straight pin to poke the bubble and remove the air. Gently rub your finger over it and the hole that you poked with disappear. How's that for a fun little tip?!
I used the solid vinyl and cut strip of it to cover the binding. To add the initial, I cut the letter using my Silhouette Cameo and adhered it to the front cover using Transfer Tape.
The final decorative touch was a little tassel bookmark I created using twine in the following colors: Solid Twine in Marigold and Blossom and Baker's Twine in Lilac and Ocean. And of course they match perfectly with some pens from the Le Pen's Bright Set. I just love how the SRM Stickers vinyl added new life and loads of color to these simple little notebooks. Now I know my niece's are going to love them!
