No matter how much you love your job, sometimes it can be the little things that get you through a long meeting or a tedious day at work.  For me, one of those little things is a cute notebook.  Don't knock 'till you try it, ladies.  Even better - you can make yourself a pretty little notebook with very little time and money.

Materials:

  • Composition Book
  • Pretty Gift Wrap
  • Mod Podge

You can find composition books for super cheap at dollar stores, and I highly recommend World Market's selection of gorgeous gift wraps.

Putting It All Together: Begin by spreading open the composition book onto the back of the gift wrap and tracing all the away around the edge.

Glue the gift wrap to the front of the composition book by brushing Mod Podge onto the book.

As you glue the gift wrap down, work out any bubbles or wrinkles with a credit card.

For a little something extra, add a circle of label paper to the center and label as you like.
