As you can see I've made the cover. Its looking pretty plain at the moment but I'll be adding some embellishments later. The measurements, in the instructions, were a little small so the inside of the cover isn't as neat as I'd like.
I loved making the elastic loops for the pen and the wrap around for the cover. I'm pleased with those.
The joining of the pages was interesting and it took me a while to figure out how best to fold then so they'd lay properly but I got there in the end. I liked the concept of diagonal pockets to pop in your notes for each month...... Note to self, Don't forget to print off the notes section of the tutorial....
What would I do differently next time???
I wouldn't use such a thick cardboard when making the pocket that holds the pages in place and I wouldn't do what was recommended and use my glue gun to fix that page in certain places. It just didn't work for me and I might have to redo that part because the glue didn't stick well and just formed hard lumps that look a bit unsightly under the edge of the pocket.
I wouldn't use so much double sided tape and use glue in some places, but thats a personal preference.
I would also check the measurements and compare them to the page sizes before I cut and tick them.
I hope to finish the matting tomorrow ..................................
