Flaunt It Fridays Ch# 7 - Mini Monsters

Hello all my bloggy friends!
This week over at FLAUNT IT FRIDAYS
we are asked to FLAUNT the SKULL & CROSSBONES on page 65.

I had a very hard time trying to figure out how to use this cut. Which is why they call this a “Challenge”, right? LOL

When I looked at the cut, it kept reminding me of Pirates and Treasures and Treasure Maps. So I went with the Treasure idea and made a Custom Binder Cover for my 3-ring Pink Binder. This binder has all my important TREASURES in it. A 2011 calendar with my schedule; a list of team members and contact info for both my challenge blogs (Paper Playtime and Flaunt It Fridays), ideas of Paper Project Types, and instructions I find in blogland of items I want to make.

  • Pink cardstock background from stash (it's actually from a Christmas bundle of cardstock a friend sent me)
  • Green paper at bottom from Recollections ALL GIRL
  • Ribbon from Michaels
  • Purple paper from stash
  • All other papers for cuts from Recollections Colored Core
  • MINI MONSTERS Skull p. 65 cut @ 2 1/2”
  • FOREVER YOUNG Model 1 page 24 cut @ 6”
  • FOREVER YOUNG “details” p. 26 cut @ 1”
  • A CHILD'S YEAR font used for “My Treasures”. “M” and “T” cut @ 3” all other letters cut @ 1 1/2”

We hope you pop over to FLUANT IT FRIDAYS and play along with us!

Hugs, :) Janis


  1. Awesome project! What a great idea for covering your binder! I love the colors you used and how you incorporated several cartridge cuts into one project. Just love it!

  2. Janis I love this idea so much. This skull is the perfect image to say Stay Out!! Nicely!! Love it!

  3. What a clever idea on how to use the skull & Bones!

  4. Janis! I love this it is precious! Did you glue this on the front of a binder or did u use one of those binders that has the clear pocket on front? I love this and need to make me a binder! Love you

  5. posted wrong one but still creative and pretty ha.

  6. Oh Carley asked a good question!! I want to know the answer to that one, too! Great treasure binder and I need to make me one, too! :)

  7. I love this idea! I really need to make one now!

  8. Very cute. I love how you covered the binder. I also have the forever young cart and am always trying to find ways to use it!

  9. Janis, I love your project for this week. I love that you altered a three ring notebook. It really does not look like you are having trouble coming up with ideas:)
