Just My 2 Cents

What can you get for a penny these days?  Not too much unless you go to Staples for your back to school supplies shopping.  They had notebooks for a penny each!!  Of course I bought the limit which was 6 and then went to another Staples to get 6 more.  As you can see I, altered two of them for my daughter and her BFF.

I used scraps from a DCWV paper pack and the yet to be released School Rules stamp set from CTMH.  The paper is very glittery since both the girls love things that sparkle.  I also added a little more glitter in certain areas with my Sakura glitter pen.

I used chipboard letters for their names, painted with the Pearl Create-a-Shade paint from CTMH.  I sponged some black ink around the edges of the letters to make them pop.  I also reinforced the holes on the side with some heavy duty eyelets and used a lot of scor-tape.  Maybe these will at least last for the first day.  :)

I embellished with some sparkle flowers and brads I had in my stash and viola! super cute notebooks for two special girls.


  1. How fantastic are these don't be surprised if your daughter gets more BFF when the kiddos at school get a load of these! Beth

  2. These are so fun! Your DD and her friend will just LOVE them - they are interesting and different! Individual.



Sharing your thoughts makes my day and I appreciate that you take the time to leave me a comment.
