Try It Tuesday - Personalized Notebook


Want to make a notebook or a journal special without the the price tag? Then try adding a little glam to a composition notebook. You can usually buy one for about $1, but if you plan ahead during school supply season they are usually on sale for 2/$1.



Pick out some scrapbooking paper that you like and cut/glue on so that it meets the black binding on both the front cover and back cover.

Then I added some thin ribbon around the edge and some thicker ribbon to have it tie. All ribbon was leftover from other projects. You can add even more glam by adding any other type of decorations (like the butterfly to the top). And you have just created a personalized and low-cost notebook or journal that you can use or give as s gift.

Great project idea! I bought a bunch of these composition notebooks on clearance at Target for just $.15 each. Will have to work on this!
