Altered Notebook ~ High Hopes Challenge



This week, the challenge at High Hopes is to create "anything but a card". I made up this little notebook as a small gift for my nephew. I used a notebook and pen that I bought at the dollar store. I measured out the size of the front cover and cut my paper to fit. I used my Stampin' Up spiral punch on one side of the paper. It matches up perfectly. Here is the only tricky part! Flip the back cover off your book. Slide it off the binding. Now you can slide your DP onto the front cover and tape it down. Put the back cover back on! Done! I used this sweet High Hopes Elephant. I just love to color him! I used an alphabet template to trace the lette "M" and then cut it out.


Enjoy your day. I hope to post another card later on but first I have a few loads of laundry that need to be attended to!
