Shaker Dashboard For my Clear TN With The Lollipop Box Club

For this months box, I absolutely had to make a shaker dashboard for my clear TN. With my sewing machine all ready, and fingers crossed that she will once and for all behave for me, I cut the acetate to size, stuck on the pompom trim and just went for it!

Thankfully, it was a success! I then added some sequins and both the ephemera and butterfly shiny decors that came with the kit. Then I finished the dashboard off by stitching all the way around. 

I also wanted to add some wording to the paperclip that came with the kit. I chose a clear sticker as I thought that would look as though it blended in.

All that was left was to put it all together. I added the postcard into the folder I made with the previous kit.

The butterfly charm, also from the kit, really compliments the look.

Autumnal Clear TN Set Up

It's all about the layers!

This month I really wanted to decorate my clear travelers notebook for Autumn. These clear notebook covers are begging to be decorated! 

I started by creating a dashboard out of some patterned cardstock. The size is easily achieved by using an existing insert as a template. Next, I pulled out everything from the box and chose things that made me happy when put together.

You can create fantastic depth to something by adding layers! I did this by using multiple layers of the exclusive papers and the paper bags.

As you faff and play around with different elements, making sure you experiment with them as you go along, you'll come up with neat little tricks. For example, as I stuck the paper bag down, I found instead of cutting it, if I folded it under onto the other side, it created another pocket! This could hold goals lists, and my postcards from the box. 

I also included both functional and keepsakes in my dashboard. For example a to do list and my tag from Lisa's box.

Finally, using the stickers and ephemera, including tabs, I decorated different elements of the cover, and finished off by adding the cute pumpkin paperclip. 

I really hope this inspired you to try out the layering technique using as much of the kit as possible!
