Cut@Home Blog - Scrapbooking & Card Making Ideas

Make Your Own Sketchbook

I teach an AP Art class and if you know anything about AP classes you always have about 2 weeks left after they take their tests so in AP Art we do a little bookmaking and each student makes their own sketchbook that they can fill up through out the summer. Here are a few examples of books that I made with them where I used Bo Bunny and Authentique paper as the cover. This paper is perfect for the cover because it is sturdy and durable (Plus it looks really nice). After I got them done here at the school I took them home and Heather and I added some fun things to to finish them off.

DSC_0674With this one we just used some foil and stamped it with Spellbinders Floral Set, sanded the surface so you can see the texture a little better, cut it out , and glued it on.





DSC_0672For this one we just cut out the number from a page in The Sweetest Thing paper stack by My Minds Eye and added some pearls.







And on the last one we felt like if we added anything to it it would make it too busy so just left it as it was.






These books are a lot of fun and you can use them for more than just sketchbooks so give one a try and make yourself a journal, notebook, or anything else you need a book to take notes in.

    Love the grey one particularly, but they are all very nice. Did you use a bought book as a base, then cover it?

  • Cut@Home

    You can purchase books to cover, or you can make your own. Doug acutally makes a lot of his own books, as that was part of his major, but to save time, you can most definitely purchase a book to cover!
