This was a pretty easy project, it just took a really long time to finish because of all the tiny strips of newspaper!
 I just glued them onto a composition notebook (my favorite to cover because you dont have to deal with the spirals on the other kind of notebook) with a glue stick and then covered the whole thing with mod-podge when it was fully covered.

I'm not sure why I chose newspaper, I thought it might look kind of neat when it was finished  Cheesy

That is freaking genious. I love to decoupage. I did the same sort of thing but sliced up address labels and other wordy stickers to cover a bucket.
