Cathie Filian and Steve Piacenza always have  TONS of wonderful craft ideas…for an easy project with a lot of design impact – this one has to be one of my new favorites. It’s simple, inexpensive, and functional — who could ask for anything more? And if you take tons of notes for work or school like we do — this is soooo much better than a boring journal or notepad.

Here’s what you will need for this project:

- a composition book (you the cheapies you get for the kids for school.)

- Mod Podge (You totally already have some in a cabinet somewhere…)

- Scrapbook paper (I bet this would work with fabric too!) and embellishments like ribbon and sparkleys (crystals, glitter, etc.)

- A glue gun to attach your embellishments to the front
