Aren't they cute? They're super easy and super cheap to make (my favorite kind of project!). And I'm going to show you how I did it -- although most of you out there are so crafty, I'm sure you can tell just by looking at the picture how to duplicate this :).
Step 1: I started with these supplies:
- Mini-composition books (three for a dollar at your local dollar store!)
- Spray adhesive glue (PVC glue or Yes Paste would also work)
- Scissors and/or paper trimmer
- Fun scrapbook paper
- Something to protect your work area from the spray adhesive
Step 2: Measure the length and width of your composition book. Don't include the black binding. But do include some overhang. I ended up cutting mine to 3 inches by 4.5 inches.
Step 3: Cut two panels per book (one for the front, and one for the back)
Step 4: Spray the backside of the paper with the adhesive. Attach to the cover of the book, working quickly. [No picture of this step... was too busy working quickly!]
Step 5: Trim the overhang around the edges.
Step 6 (optional): You could add coordinating paper to the inside of the front cover and the back cover, but I was too hungry for lunch at this point to care!
Step 7: Admire!
You could also add embellishments to the front of the cover, but I would make sure they weren't too bulky or three-dimensional: you want to make sure they're easy to carry around in a purse! I also thought about personalizing them with stamped initials on the front. Have fun with it!
