So it's Thursday, but I feel like it should be Friday :) Do you feel like that? Haha! A few weeks ago Michelle Wooderson posted THESE cute notebooks. Well, you know how I LOVE notebooks, so I immediately put them on my list of things to make.
I ran into a a few problems, like I broke my sewing machine (only the second time I have used it). I'm doomed with that thing, I tell ya. But I figured out a different way to bind the notebooks and all was good.
Here's the notebook. It measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.
It has lined notebook pages and graph paper pages.
Here's a shot of the binding. I used my Crop a Dile and punched two holes on the crease then ran some twine through and tied it off on the inside, middle page, which is this fabulous ledger paper.
To cover up the twine on the outside, I used some Smash Book washi tape. Man, that stuff is weird, not sticky, but it sticks. You know what I mean?
These books look as close to Michelle's as I could get them, with a few variations. I made one for each of the girls and kept one for myself. I haven't had a chance to decorate it yet. Not sure what I'll be using it for, that usually guides my decoration :)
Oh, did you know you can buy FANTASTIC ledger paper at Walmart for $3.88?
They also have a bigger/longer pad for like $6, but I figure this one will work fine.
Okay, enjoy your Thursday. After work Abie has her first Volleyball practice so no grocery store tonight, saving that for tomorrow! Ha! Thanks for coming by today :)
