I took all those half used composition notebooks that the kids bring home from school at the end of the year and turned them into travel notebooks for our cross country trip.

For those of you that may not know what notebooks I'm talking about here's a before pic:

I kept two sets of covers and all the unused pages. And added to that some calender pages from last year and a ribbon. After spending lots of quality time with a hole punch, and a sore hand later, the final product:

Thanks for looking!

What a nice way to recycle those half finished notebooks!

And a great way to document a special trip!

Did you put in new pages?  I've been trying that with comp notebooks and for some reason, the pages and covers never stay lined up well...for instance, when you go to open it, it kind of falls apart.  I've tried ribbon binding but it never seems to work!  Those look so awesome!
