Tie-Dye Notebook Covers & "What's A Bone Folder?"

Saturday, September 17, 2016

Holy Smokes - I can't believe it's been a whole month since my last post! That's silly, really! This house-buying, packing, moving, setting-up-the-new-house stuff has really been a lot of work...but it's also very fun! (Losing Our House and House Update) Coming up here on the blog over the next while I am going to have quite a lot of home improvement and decor DIYs to share with you all - that is fun and exciting! For today, though, I've got a Back-to-School DIY project...it is a little late being posted--because I couldn't quite get it finished before I had to focus all my time on packing and moving--but doesn't even matter, though. These Tie-Dye Book Covers are great to do any time you want, and really don't have to be for back to school at all! Maybe you don't even go to school and just like them and want to make them - go for it!

In this tutorial I do cover 2 different styles of "tying" for different tie-dyed designs, as well as how to cover the books, and I talk about the bone folder at the beginning--since I've been getting so many questions about it--so that's why the video is a little longer; there's a lot of information in it! But it's all important and useful, so you'll love it!! So now, go ahead, watch it, and hopefully create your own awesome Tie-Dye Book Covers, too!

- Composition Notebooks (or Hard Cover)
- Sharpie Markers
- 2-Ply Paper Towels (full size sheets)
