WooHoo! Have been wanting to replace my little notebook that I keep in my labcoat pocket for awhile now. My old one is getting quite ratty tatty. Wally World had those cute little mini-composition notebooks in stock and the cost was a whopping $0.77 each. I bought 16 of them and decided that I would make a boat load of them to give to co-workers that want them (many will!). I was surprised at how quickly they went together, even for me!
These can not have a bunch of embellies on them as they would just start falling off after going in and out of pockets hundreds of times a day and I figured a few of the guys might like them as well if they weren't all covered in flowers and fru-fru. I decided on the basic focal and got out the die cuts... can you see the largest blossom from BBII at PTI behind the label die? Used Take a Note for the sentiments as they are just perfect for this type of occasion. I did scuff up the comp books a bit to take the shine off and used a glue stick to attach the PP. Time will tell how well these hold up but I glued everything down very well. Used glue dots to attach the focal and used the ATG gun tape for each layer using several passes on the back of each one. I think they will just wear out before they come apart. Don't you think they are cute?
Would love to know what you think?
