Dollar Store Notebook

A place to write one's dreams...whether it be a journal of gratitude or a "someday list" of craft projects, our thoughts deserve a pretty place to land. This was a dollar store notebook that I carefully removed the wire binding from. Then I printed the image from Graphics Fairy on cardstock, adding the word NOTES from printshop, and glued the cardstock to the front cover. A little black and brown ink softened the edges making it look like it has been around for a while! Next I punched all the holes and re threaded the wire binding. The daisy was given a little ink on the tips of the petals and attached with glue dots. Easy to put together and oh so inexpensive! Diana
