Joy Composition book tutorial

Hi Everyone,

With so many birthdays coming up, and Summer parties, it can become quite costly to give presents. I’m Maggie with you today to share a fun tutorial that will not break the bank.

Composition books are no longer for students, they are so versatile and can be used for anything, from birthday present, art journals, diary etc..

Let’s begin!

Supplies:

  • Mother’s Day Bouquet Cricut Cartridge, cut a total of 30 petals to form the flowers at the following descending order 2.75″, 2.5″, 2.25″, 2″, 1.75″, 1.5″,1.25″, 1″. Ink the edges with Letraset pro Marker. Form the flower following this previous tutorial,add Ranger Stickles Diamond, let dry.
  • Cut 2 butterflies from Rock Princess Cricut Cartridge,  at 4.5″, 3.75″, ink the edges with Letraset pro Marker,add Ranger Stickles Diamond, let dry.
  • Cover the composition book with the Parisian Anthology paper, use the negative of the butterfly to spray the paper using Glimmer mist turquoise, let dry. Adhere the smaller butterfly on top of the mask butterfly, fold the wings upward to look like it’s in flight.

  • Adhere prima say it in crystal on the composition book, adhere Parisian Anthology trim, adhere the flowers, add Parisian Anthology tickets, add joy rubon, adhere 3 gems on the bottom right.

Voila an elegant composition book as a present for  any occasion.

Here’s the final composition book again.

I would love to hear from you, don’t forget to let me what you think of this fun tutorial 🙂

    I love the ribbon work and the butterfly on this. I don’t have the Hanna Montana cartridge but I can see it with the Inde Art butterfly.

    Hi Gail,
    After back to school I purchased the composition books for $.50cents, at that price I figured I will find something to do with them, some are lined and some are solid.
    I would love to see what you guy’s created,
    Thanks
    Maggie
