Pocket Notebook Cover with Belagio Cork Fabric

O do I love this fabric, it's fabulous!

I found a tiny notebook that belonged to my Mum, (she was a stationery addict, who do I take after you ask). I have it on my desk next to me so I can write idea's in, but it's so small I keep loosing it inbetween things, so I decided to make a cover for it.

The cork fabric is just gorgeous, and that hint of gold makes it stand out on the desk so I can see it! I hid a ribbon underneath the frame, so it could be tied closed. And of course I couldn't help but add a little more bling with gold wax.

I kept things simple by covering a piece of Matboard with the fabric and cutting the notebook, making sure it was right upto the edge of the board, so it would leave me a piece leftover that would be big enough to die cut the Trinket Box Frame from.
I tied a piece of brown ribbon around the spine to hold my little book (and a tissue).

I used Rangers rose gold card to cut out the inside covers, and trimmed them down to keep the spine clear, so it would fold.

Just look how tiny my book is, no wonder I kept loosing it, and I love the tiny rusty staples so cute.

So where can you find Belagio cork fabric?
