I love the classic feel of the notebooks with their stiff covers and stitched binding, but that doesn't mean they couldn't benefit from a little dressing up! Covers give you a nice way to keep pens and misc. notes together with the book. I have a whole stack of these notebooks filled with creative doodles and ideas- I try to keep at least one close at hand at all times. Here's a quick and easy project to dress up an inexpensive composition notebook, available at any office supply or discount store, and turn it into something special. Learn an easy way to attach trim to a project. Put together a whole collection of these for gifts. You'll love keeping one with you wherever you go! These detailed instructions include step by step photographs and clear writing. *Special Note: Although you can find these notebooks almost anywhere with lines or graph squares in them, Amazon also carries them with blank pages, or half blank and half lined.
