Spiral Bound Index Card Cover

Posted by on January 13, 2013

I mentioned in an earlier post that I’m participating in an on-line scripture memory group with a friend. You could purchase small spiral bound notecard from them, but instead I thought I’d just get one locally. So, I bought index cards that were spiral bound. There are 50 index cards, which is ample for the 24 scriptures I’ll memorize (2 scriptures each month). I can use the additional cards however I want. They are perforated at the top for removal. I wanted to pretty it up and was inspired by a wonderful spiral notebook & cover I received when I completed a hand-stitching class taught by Rachel over at Stitched in Color. I don’t really have much experience in creating new things, just finding other people’s awesome stuff and pretty much making it as originally designed. So this was a challenge for me. For starters, since it’s bound index cards, it’s small and I wasn’t sure I could make a small scale piece. Oh, and I’m not that great at math…

Figuring out color, pattern, and size needed for the cover. What a mess!

Well, I’m happy with the end result. It took time. Too much time, really. Because I refuse to do things the easy way most of the time. I did take notes and drew pictures to help me remember what I did. I put in a couple of HSTs (half square triangles), which was a first ever. I’ve seen them, love them, but had never tried it before. SO easy.

Here’s the finished project. Front inside/out, Back inside/out. I’m pretty tickled about it!

I’m going to get started on the next one. As I never do anything the same twice, I don’t know which I’ll keep and which I’ll give away. I want to make sure hers is pretty and mine is one I’d be proud to tell people I made.

So, would this be incentive for you to memorize Scripture?

      Thanks, Elizabeth Ann! I’ve known this verse, heard it taught over the years, but it has been sweet to my spirit, meditating on and memorizing it. Have a wonderful day!

    This turned out beautiful Terry! I think I need to make some of these to cover up my notebooks. :)
