Happy Monday afternoon dumplings. First falling back on an old cliche, Better late than never. I know this should have been completed, photographed and scheduled yesterday at the latest, but it wasn’t and I have absolutely no excuse. I looked up the best way to measure these mini writing tablets and measured one so I could make the covers, big thank you to Sam Donald Hammond for her YouTube video. To make the covers I used Emerald Envy cardstock and one of the designs from the Tutti-Frutti dsp pack. I added a sentiment from the Sure Do Love You stamp set. It was stamped in Emerald Envy ink on Whisper White cardstock. I used a plain and a scalloped die from the Layering Circles Framelits dies set. I adhered the Whisper White circle to the Emeral Green scalloped circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then I adhered that to the front of the cover also using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I bought the mini writing tablets at the dollar store, 5/$1.00. I plan to give them to attendees at my next class. Since Miss Hammie knows her sweet dumplings are “eagle eyed” I’m sure you noticed the one Berry Burst scalloped circle. I had a scrap that was large enough to cut out a circle and I wondered how the Berry Burst would look so I used the scrap to test my preference. I’m thinking I’ll do half Emerald Envy and half Berry Burst. Considering this basically cost me a dollar plus tax, I made out like a bandit. Here are the ones I’ve completed.
I’ll need to make another dollar store run to make enough for class, but you really have to see if you like something before investing two or three dollars, right? Just kidding, sort of. I’m sure you’re thinking “Miss Hammie didn’t include dimensions for us to cut the paper”. No, I didn’t because it depends on the size of the tablet you have and it might not be the same size as mine. Basically you need to measure the height, the width and the very top where the pages are glued together and then add about two inches. Mine were 51/8H, 31/2W and the top was 1/8, so I cut mine to a final size of 61/2 x 31/2.
