Simple Can Always Be Fun!

A simple composition book on sale cost less than a dollar! Of course I bought 10! 

Decided to sass them up a little!  I added Hello Kitty scrapbook paper to cover the outside of the book.

I added some Hello Kitty paper tape to the spine of the book to cover up the black edge.

This is the inside of the cover, I made sure not to cover up any important information that may be needed in the future!

I added a scrap piece of grosgain polka dot ribbon for a boo marker.  I glued it down and then covered it with another strip of paper tape to make it look a little more presentable. 

This is the book mark in action! Another ribbon could be added, if you want more then 1 book mark.


I had a piece of polka dot paper left over from the lunch bunch card, so I used to to matte the white piece of paper.  I added a Hello Kitty sticker that I had for a little more cuteness!  In a matter of 10 minutes or so, I've turned a simple composition book into something cute and fun! Great idea for kids!  I'm all about making things fun for them, especially school!!
