Crochet keeper notebook for patterns


This will be used to keep patterns I learn and obtain from either the internet or the Wed Crochet group.

The cover is actually pieces of chipboard that I cut from a Wheat Thin box. Perfect size. I took notebook paper and trimmed it to size and placed inside the covers.
I punched the binder ring holes with my Crop-A-Dile
I added a border using Martha Stewart punch.
Tied various yarn and ribbon to the binder rings.
Added a couple inked Tim Holtz Adage Tickets
Created my own hat pin and weaved it through a couple crochet flowers I made.
Added some pearls to the border strip. Attached the flowers to a Tim Holtz swivel clip.

Used my Cuttlebug to die cut the swirls and added mini pearls as accents.
Entering this in the Cuttlebug Challenge called "Be Inspired #97 Book it" and One stop Craft Challenge - not a card.
