Covered Books using Spoonflower Prints

I have a bunch of 8x8 spoonflower prints that have been sitting here staring at me.  I've been searching for some fun ways to use them with no luck.  Until today while browsing...Pinterest of course!  I got these cute notebooks from the 1.00 spot in March from Michaels, so I decided to cover the outside of the notebooks with the fabric.  After doing the first one I thought, there has to be a better way.  Then I remembered Mark Montano in his book, The Big Ass Book of Crafts, showed how to build a book completely out of cardboard laying around.  So I used the same concept. 
Since the front of my books had patterns on them I used a thick cardstock to trace and cover with the fabric.  Then I used Helmar's 450 quick dry to put everything together.  Here's how I did the fabric books and a sample of a full book that I made out of cardboard and scrap paper I had laying around!

An Oldie but Goodie...Free 4th of July Printable

If you've been following me a long time you know that printables and hybrid is what I love.  This is something that I posted last year but wanted to bring to you guys again.  With new links, because 4shared is WAY to confusing for me :D  And I want you guys to be able to actually download something without jumping through hoops!
So here you go!  Share on pinterest with your crafty friends if you like!  This would be a great activity on the 4th of July for those kiddos (or adults)!
Open the PDF file by downloading onto your computer and double clicking on it
Print off as many as you need
I used Helmar Products to create dimension and the number "4" by using glitter
Have fun!  There's no right or wrong way to do this!
