Doodle That Mini Notebooks

These are altered notebooks. I had gotten them at the Dollar Spot at Target. And yes, they still have more!!!!

They come in a package of two and they are from the "Hello Kitty" series. The covers have a shine to them so I sanded them down a little so the "Anywhere Glue Stick" from Stampin' Up! would work on it.

I opened up the book, took off the key chain and then traced the outline. As I was gluing the decorative paper to it I realized that the paper was too short so I cut it down the middle and added the contrasting card stock to the spine to hide my error. But now the whole world knows my secret!!! I used a small punch for the snaps and I just kept punching around the first punch until the hole was almost big enough. I just pushed the decorative paper under the snap after I got the glue on. This way it doesn't show the choppy hole I made! Again, another secret the whole world now knows!!! I stamped a few of the little flowers from "Doodle That", cut them out and glued them on too! I punched a hole in the spine and put the key chain back on. The second one went a lot smoother and quicker!

These were very fun and the best thing about these is the nice key chain. I plan to hang one from either my keys or my purse handle. I don't like having to dig for a piece of paper to write something down quickly. Too bad it didn't come with a tiny pen! I'll still have to dig for that!!!

Thanks for looking!
