Altered Notebooks

I found these notebooks in Michaels $1 bins and thought I'd try to alter them. It's really easy once you mess the first one up and figure out a few tricks to cover the entire thing. The notebook lying down is the "before". I tried a matching bookmark too.

How cute! Where did you get the giant paper clips? I look for them all the time but never find them. The books are adorable.

P.S. I have survived! So far....LOL

I love these! I always buy those too, with the intention of altering them, and never quite get to it... now that I've seen how great they turn out, I may have to dig mine out!
