Copic paper- what to do?

I bought a pad of paper suitable for Copics, but I just noticed upon using it for the first time that it's 70gsm! So basically, it's see-through. So I stamp my image on this lovely paper that takes the copic ink really well, and then I can't really mount it on anything but white.

Don't get me wrong, the paper is nice and does what it says on the tin, but I don't know what to do next...

This is a Tesco Value jotter that I made up using the image I stamped on the paper. I needed special adhesive that wouldn't show through as well. Another bugbear! And I will need to decorate the join too as it's visible.

Suggestions anyone?

Never used copic paper before - you could try asking on a forum that has a section on copics - try UKS cardmaking section.

You could put ribbon or a punched border in coloured card over your joins.

Lovely notepad.

what a bummer about the paper. How about ribbon or a punched border......then again just read Karen's post. Looks great though.
