For this woven Vinyl Wire Scrap booking Cover Craft Project You Will Need:
Scissors or tin snips
The first step is to buy Vinyl Wire. I find quite a selection often at home improvement stores, hardware stores, and electrical stores. I always end up looking for Vinyl Wire in black or white, but you can find it in a variety of colors.
Unroll your Vinyl Wire and start cutting out strips. You can use tin sips or scissor. Any of these should work fine.
Now, Use one of those ready-made scrapbooks you can buy at any craft store for the base of this project.
You want to measure how large your scrapbook cover is and make your Vintage Ribbon strips about four inches wider and taller.
Don’t forget to cover both the front and back at the same time, so when you are measuring how wide you scrap book cover is lay the book open and face down flat. Measure all the way from left to right.
Now, I like to run a bead of hot glue along the inside top edge of the scrapbook cover. Go ahead and place your strips of Vinyl Wires vertically ling this top row on the inside. The ribbons should be touching on the left and right. Cover the entire inside edge.
Now, flip your Vinyl Wires over and have them hang over the front of the scrapbook. Fold them back inside the bottom and glow them down inside the bottom edge of the scrapbook cover.
Repeat this step on the front left inside of the cover with your horizontal pieces.
Flip the Vinyl Wires over the edge and out the front. Weave them out to make the cover.
Now, as you reach the backside fold the Vinyl Wires inside and glue them down in the inside edge of the back cover.
Repeat until the entire scrapbook is covered in Vinyl Wires.
Do any trimming if necessary with the tin snips.
To add a sparkle to your woven metal scrapbook cover you can use silver vinyl covered wire.
To complete the woven Vinyl Wires scrapbook cover you need to line the inside of the scrapbook cover with felt and a little batting. Start by cutting a piece of batting and fabric out to fit the inside of the cover. The batting should be slightly smaller than the felt.
Next, cut out pieces to line the inside of the inside of the back scrapbook cover. Glue it into place as well. Glue it into place with a spray adhesive or epoxy glue that will stick. Lay the batting down first and glue, then the felt and glue.
You are finished!
You can also add words to this metal scrapbook cover by cutting letters out of vintage jewelry. Try spelling out words with vintage earrings.
