Here's the mini compostion book & pen that goes with my Christmas set. I'm still waiting on the date books, then I'm done with this set!
Added 8/16 @ 3:30 pm central time:
I thought these were mini composition books, until I went to Walmart today and found some even smaller! This one is 6"x4" (I like this size better) and the mini ones are 4½"x 3¼".
I'm sure you can find GOOD instructions in the forums if you do a search, but for those who wanted to know, this is how I did mine. All I did was lay the book on the paper I wanted for the front and traced, then did the same for the back. I cut the paper to butt up to the black spine and adhered with a tape runner. Then I measured the black spine and cut out and adhered a co-ordinating paper and decorated the front like I wanted.
The pen is a regular sized RSVP pen I got at Walmart. It is NOT a beaded one. I found the measurements for the paper insert somewhere in the forums.... don't ask me where cuz now I can't find it. Use copy/typing paper if you're going to stamp on it or regular weight patterned paper.... they tell me it's easier than cardstock to get rolled and in the pen... I've never tried cardstock. Cut it 3¼"x 7/8" and roll with a chopstick, scewer (sp) or something small. Unscrew the bottom off the pen, take out the ink tube, put your rolled paper in and then put the pen back together. I'm sure there are MUCH better instructions in the forums if you do a search. I just wanted to tell you all how I did mine, for those who wanted to know! Thanks so much for your nice comments! :)
