How to Create a Shaker Notebook Cover

by Kymona Tracey

Hello, everyone!

Kymona here to show you how to create a shaker notebook cover using the new Live Your Dream Chipboard Stickers and Die-Cuts Embellishments.

Let's take a look at my shaker notebook cover:

ChipboardI love how this cover looks. Totally created from embellishments! I love combining my love of paper-crafting and sewing so when I saw Paige Evans notebook cover, I knew I had to give it a try.

Here's how I created this shaker cover:

I laid out all of the pieces from both embellishments packs on my sewing table.

Then I picked the pieces that I wanted to appear on the cover.

ChipboardI placed the chosen pieces on a 6 x 6 piece of white cardstock. Then I drew boxes around each piece so that I could mark where the stitch lines go.

chipboardNow I'll use this piece of cardstock as a guide to draw the lines on the plastic cover.

ChipboardI used a colored thread to create contrast on the cover.

Next, I added sequins (or heart pebbles) in the pockets to create the shaker effect.

Once the boxes are full and the stitches are closed, I attached it to a piece of patterned paper to create the completed cover.
