Step 1: Cut your desired Pattern Paper for the front of your Mini Notes down to 3 1/4" wide x 4 1/4" tall. Laminate your front cover and then use a planner punch for discs to punch your cover holes. (repeat this same process for your back cover as well.)

Step 2: Glue the Chipboard Spider Web die cut to the top right corner of your cover. 

Step 3: Next Glue the Chipboard Ornate Frame to the Black Ornate Frame Die Cut together and attach to the center of your front cover. 

Step 4: Then Glue your 2 coordinating flowers to the bottom right corner of your cover as shown in the photo above.

Step 5: Using only the center cut out portion of the chipboard ornate frame, position the Long Hair Stencil over the die cut, and then Use Distress Ink in Vintage Photo to blend over the stencil. Once done blending remove the stencil, and then spray the blended die cut with Vintage Photo Ink Spray as shown above.

Step 6: Using Foam Tape attach the Distress Ink Blended die cut to the center of the Ornate Frame.

Step 7: Glue the Black Spider die cuts over the Chipboard Spider die cuts and then attach them to your front cover.

Step 8: Blend Vintage Photo around the edges of the Chipboard Skull and attach to the front of your cover as shown above.

Step 9: Create your paper beads by cutting long tapered paper strips from various pattern papers. Using a bead rolling tool, roll the beads and then glue the end to fasten. (you can use toothpicks and a piece of clay to create a diy drying rack for your beads.)

Step 10: Place your paper beads on toothpicks and then using a small paint brush coat each bead with Triple Thick Gloss Glaze. Then place the toothpicks holding the beads into your clay drying rack. Once your beads are dry you can remove them from the toothpicks.

Step 11: Cut a piece of Purple Twine about 15" long. String 2 of your finished beads onto each end of the twine, and your spider charm onto one side. Then Tie a knot onto each end of your bookmark to finish. Place your bookmark along the inside pages of your Planner Notebook.

Step 12: Stamp the super Adorable Medusa image onto your choice of Blending Cardstock. Color the image in with your choice of coloring medium. I have listed the Copic Markers above in the supply list that I used.

Step 13: To finish Fussy cut Medusa out, and then attach her to the front of your planner notebook with foam tape for some added dimension.
