I needed to buy 3 composition books for both of the girls and fell in love with some very cute patterned ones but was shocked at the price difference. I could by a plain one for 0.40 or I could get the girls pretty floral or stripe ones for $2.49 each. Quickly doing the math I found that it would cost me $12 more just for pretty notebooks. Sadly I realized that cuteness was completely out of my budget. I bought the plain ones.
It wasn't until days later that I came up with a solution. Scrapbook paper and Mod Podge.
I cut the paper to fit the front and back covers, added a bit of accent paper on the edge and used the Mod Podge to put it all together. Allison and Kathryn did most of the gluing work with me just supervising. Not only did I save $12 but my girls are so proud to have cute notebooks and we spent meaningful time together doing a useful craft.
