Mini Notebook and Stamp

Printable Vynil, Cover Book, KNK,

Printable Vynil

I was wondering what to make as a party favor but, at the same time, keeping it personalized and different. Because I LOVE the printable vinyl that knkusa.com has, I decided to make some Mini Notebooks. The combination of the chipboard and the printable vinyl from knkusa.com are TERRIFIC. The printable vinyl sticks really well to the chipboard.

Materials:

KNK Cutter Machine, chipboard, printable vinyl, copy paper, and any way of binding. I used the Bind-It-All machine.

To make the Mini Notebook, I cut the cover of the Notebook with my KNK cutter machine (attached there is a template). Then, I just designed the cover and printed it on my inkjet printer. (Note that a laser printer maybe too hot for the printable vinyl). Next, I cut the copy paper to size to make the pages of the notebook. Finally, I used the Bind-It-All machine to bind it all together. If you do not have one, you can click here and follow the easy steps on “How to bind a book”. In the template that I made, I included the spine of the book cover.

Your Own Stamp

Stamp, KNK

Fun Foam Stamp

The KNK machines are so AWESOME that I use my machine to make my own stamps. This stamp was made out of Fun Foam and it is very simple to make.

Materials:

KNK Cutter Machine, MTC, Fun Foam, glue, and clear block

The mask is a file from MTC Software. Just cut the file twice, glue them together, and place on a clear block with double tape adhesive. Ready to use!

And the result:

The free template file for the notebook is available here: Notebook Template in KNK, MTC, and SVG file formats.

  1. Oh now, I have something else I want to try! I’ve already told Chad that KNKUSA is costing me too much money and now I want some printable vinyl! Arrrrggghhhh! Love your work! So cute and very useful!

  2. I haven’t tried the printable vinyl. Does the ink tend to smear? This is a neat project.

    • Rhonda, you should try it. You print on this vinyl like if you were printing on a regular paper. After the vinyl printed it looks really beautiful. Try it!!! And the good thing is that it stick on anything. So you can make Labels for bottles, cover for books, any personalized gift, etc. etc.

  3. I have wanted to try this for a while. your project is a great and useful idea. love it.

    • Thank you Norma. Once you try the printable vinyl, you will love it. And the good thing is that it is easy to use and that you can use it in any project.

  5. What ink did you use with the stamp on the vinyl?
    Thanks for the great ideas!

    • The vinyl is printed with a regular inkjet printer. For the stamp, I used the regular ink used for stamps and I also use the embossing powder..
