Let's open another safe deposit box in the Vault and see what I've been playing with here lately.  My sister introduced me to the DIY world of Midori style traveler's notebooks.  I must say for now I'm hooked.  I made her a passport size one out of leather remnants I got at Hobby Lobby and this one I made from a placemat I got at Walmart for myself.

I used eyelets for elastic holes

Made the pen holder from placemat remnant and rivets

I have enough remaining to make 2 more.  Finished book measures 5 by 6.

This was a fun project.  The hardest part was how to get the tutu to stay on the tray but make it easy for mommy to remove after the party (Velcro dots did the trick).

Okay, I'm game.  My sister got me surfing the internet for how-to's on Fauxbonichi.  I was inspired by Tracystreasures on Youtube, her style was simple but clean.  I purchased my journal from Walmart for under $10.00.  It is a hard cover journal with ruled lines not gridded.  I got to use my Cricut Expression to cut the white wording out of vinyl.

this is my vinyl work and why my studio is named the VAULT.
