Default Altered Comp Notebooks

so I'm finally getting around to making 'em and
i have a couple questions....do you cover the inside of the front and back covers? if you do, how do you fold it over?
i'm going to use hodge podge and want to add some mico beads...how many coats of glue do you think i need to put over the beads?

thanks in advance and blessings, Sherri

Hi there! I can't answer the hodge podge question, but I do cover the inside covers. I'm still a beginner myself, but I cover the outside with enough paper to fold in. Then the inside paper I cut smaller and put inside. Kind of hard to explain, but I hope this helped.

When I want to fold paper over a rounded corner, I cut little slits around the curve so that the fold follows the curve smoothly. Hope that makes sense!

Also, if you are stamping the cardstock before applying the beads, you should use a spray sealer BEFORE applying Mod Podge (I'm assuming that's the product you plan to use) because apparently the water-based Mod Podge will cause the water-based classic inks to run!

Just an added note. If you are using Mod-Podge to coat the outside of the book when finished, it is best to use it also as the glue to stick down the paper when you start. Otherwise the paper is apt to crinkle.

I found this here at SCS some time ago. Don't remember who posted these instructions, so I can't give proper credit. These were her instructions for how she made altered comp books.

I've seen comp books done both ways...with the inside covered & not. I happen to like the inside covered. I think it gives a more "finished" look to the end product...making the whole thing look nicer

I've also seen them done where the paper has been folded over and then where it hasn't been folded over. Both can look nice.
