I made this notebook last night, or I should say I decorated it. It was already made! Anyways, this was super easy, I just took some contact paper left over from my kitchen cupboards and I put it on the notebook cover. I just can't justify spending twice the money on a pretty notebook right now, so I bought a cheap one that would do the job for half the price and made it my own! I'm sure this has been done before, but I didn't have any specific source for the idea. Hope you like Smiley

Oh, and I also made sure the contact paper was larger than the cover so that I could fold it over and tape it in place on the back. That way it won't peel off really easily after a couple days in my purse!
C&C always appreciated!
