Funky Notebooks

23 Jun

It’s summertime!  So naturally back-to-school sales are already starting!  Be on the lookout for really cheap notebooks and you can have a blast decorating them. We purchased these last year for about 10 cents each.  (These pictures aren’t the greatest, but you get the idea. We’ll post more photos soon.)

Supplies Needed:

1. notebooks

2. Sharpies

3. ribbon

4. stickers

Directions:

1. Use Sharpies to create design on notebook.

2. Embellish with stickers.

3. Add a ribbon bookmark (like yellow notebook below)  or ribbon fringe (like notebook above.)

To Create Ribbon Fringe:

You can do this any number of ways, but to create the fringe on the blue notebook above we used 21 pieces of ribbon measuring 9 inches each.  First we looped the ribbon through two rings of the spiral binder.  Then we double knotted the ribbon. We went down to the next two rings and repeated the process.  Repeat with same ribbon, or varied colors and widths of ribbon until all fringe runs down the entire spiral.
