Embellished Notebooks

More projects for this weekend's craft fair.

I bought three one subject notebooks and embellished the front with designer series paper, a few punches, pearls, and rhinestones, and added a pen tied with coordinating ribbon. To put the paper onto the notebook I use the Anywhere Glue Stick.  The rectangular shape of the glue stick allows you access to all corners of your project, and adheres great. The notebooks would make a nice project for your local library or school.  The possibilities are endless, and you could add more dimension, but I find that when I use them myself I prefer a flatter surface on the front. 

To embellish the notebooks I used the following:
Cardstock:  Poppy Parade #119793, Not Quite Navy #100867
Designer Series Paper:  Sunny Garden #119831, Play Date #117168, Paisley Petals #122367 (Sneak Peek Promotion for April)
Ribbon:  Poppy Parade 1/2" Stitched Poly #119263, Baja Breeze Seam Binding #122331 (Occasions Mini), Old Olive 3/8" Taffeta #119767
Punches:  Scallop Trim Border #118402, Scallop Edge Border #119882
Embellishments:  Pearls #119247, Rhinestones #119246
Accessories:  Anywhere Glue Stick #14045
