To Do Book

I wanted to cover my new To-Do Book in a creative way. I love woven ribbon cushion covers, and thought I would try something similar with some scrap cardboard strips I had.I took the longer strips and glued them to the inside cover of the book. Then I wove shorter black strips through. I decorated 2 of the strips with some ribbon. Once I had woven my way around the book, I secured the remaining loose ends on the inside back cover. I dotted glue on the shorter strips, to stop them from slipping out. I am happy with the outcome. Hopefully it will be easy to find the book in amongst my other stuff, with it's allround checkerboard look.

Oh that is just gorgeous. I'm always finding something to do when I have real things that must be done, and I think this will be a nice distraction. Looks great!
