Ok so school starts next Monday  Shocked  Gah, and I have 7 new binders.  One I've already redone, but the other 6 need something.  I've gotten a few ideas from this site, but I'm seeing if any one else has something to add.  They're 3 ring, 2 pkts, and no clear vinyl pockety thing on the outside.  Any help would be wonderful!

Hey!  Well, I don't know if you've already done the first one like this, but what I used to do in high school was get those shiny/slick thin plastic 3-ring binders and then cut pics or words out of magazines and use a glue stick to stick them to the binder.  after it dried a while, then i'd use the widest clear packing tape i could find to "seal" them in... and i would spend lots of time aiming the tape just right so the strips didn't overlap and there wasn't any space in between strips either Wink  ha ha  anyhow, i'd just let the end pieces wrap around to the inside and use a pocket knife to trim any extra tape that stuck out around the corners/edges.  If you've got the ones that have the cardboard in between two layers of vinyl stuff, I'm sure you could figure out a way to use the tape method if you really wanted to.

Man, now I wanna do that to my binders again.  But I'm 22 and a grad student... LOL
