Make It Monday #167: DIY Notebooks ~ Notebook 2


Your project must use at least one Papertrey product to create a DIY Notebook.

OK! This worked better for me!
You know why?
(I cheated!)

I used to make notebook by the score, literally! The ones Michelle Wooderson made. The ones using the lined Notepads that are in the PTI store.

I had 2 AWESOME blog friends make comments that were worth listening to.
Diana K wondered if using lighter weight card stock for the pages made it harder for the score tape to "grab- hold" of it?
Dorayley a.k.a. Rae had suggested using Elmer's glue to hold the pages together!
Diana might be right and Rae had a solution that reminded me...
 I had a solution on my shelf. I used some smaller, already "padded" note pads.



I know several people have made pads that worked well. If I tried again, especially with PTI card stock as Diana K said, I could probably make it work!

To me, the fun of the project is decorating the cover and pages.
Why add frustration to my life?

I really do like to make notebooks. They are SO CUTE!

Thank you for looking at my blog!
