Start with a plain composition book – many dollar stores carry them.

Using Therm O Web Super Stik, completely coat the cover of the book and the back side of patterned paper with adhesive. Coating the cover and the paper insures permanent sticking power.

Don’t cover the binding with patterned paper. Instead use some Therm O Web SuperTape Sheets and a wide ribbon or trim.

Peel off the red protective backing an apply ribbon and trim to fit. Once the cover and binding are done, decorate the cover with other embellishments. (Zots are perfect for adding buttons!)

    Whip calls the show as soon as possible (sent an important copy in his rise certificate and even drivers license), they didn’t offer anything (and Mix didn’t demand any), just a powerful autograph belonging to the star portraying your ex boyfriend.
