I'm a list person. And I like to take notes. This is an oldie but goodie craft. I like to decorate notebooks (I get them really cheap at the start of the school year) for meetings and the holidays. I use to be a HUGE scrapbooker. But since my son was born, I haven't even found the time to put his pictures in a regular album. Anyway, with all the pretty paper, embellishments, stamps, etc., it was easy to have supplies on hand. Here is what I basically use:
Some people use Mod Podge, but I'm not very good with it, so I use a spray adhesive.
You will also need a sheet of pretty scrapbook paper, scraps of paper, scissors, school glue, ruler, notebook, stickers or whatever to decorate.
First, I spray my notebook, it's best to do this outside.
Then, I measure the paper to fit my notebook. But this time, I lost my ruler, so I opened the book up and drew where to cut.
I stamped out the word "Christmas" on a scrap paper and decorated it with rub ons. Then I white glued it all into place the way I liked. The front middle title I made on the computer with a regular Word Pad page where I could change the font and color. Then, I printed it out.
My dog, Maggie, was my little helper. She's sweet, huh?
Well, that's all really. SUPER easy and very cute. Inside my Christmas List book I have lists for gifts and who to give to (save a few pages), a list for my upcoming Christmas party, a list of treats I want to bake, a list of holiday must-dos (like go out and see the holiday lights), etc., etc.
