Hi all! I have an original YourStory and I'm finally getting around to really using it. I have one of the 8x8 books with square cutout. I'd love to decorate the cover, but I'm not sure how to do this. Any ideas? Wasn't sure if I could ModPodge paper to it, that type of thing.

Thanks for any help!

Karen

Welcome to the message board! I don't know the answer either, but I'll bump for you! (I think it would be just fine).

Hi Karen, I decorated a 4 by 6 album cover and I used printed card stock, I cut some images with my cricut and used my tape runner to adhere everything down. I think it turned out rather nice. I will attempt to post a picture.

I decorated the large binder with printed card stock and a princess cricut cut. I used adhesive and it held fine. I made a photo book for my grand daughter's second bday - eveyone loved it.

Thanks for posting this question! I haven't tried it yet either but was considering covering a couple to make autograph books for my dds for a trip to Disney World in a couple of weeks.

I have used adhesive vinyl on my covers. It looks great & is easy. You can cut embellishments with your cricut if you have one or, just free hand cut. You can buy adhesive vinyl at Hobby Lobby in lots of colors.

Welcome to the MB. Lots of great ideas/inspiration here.

And what a great question. I have a Your Story and am looking forward to decorating a cover.

For the 4 x 6 covers, I've run the top through the Cuttlebug using the Divine Swirls folder and it is so pretty. I no longer have it as I gave it to my daughter. For the 8 x 8 albums, I think vinyl would look amazing!
