Notebook purse








I have made several of these notebook purses. They are soooo cute and fun to make. I used mini composition notebooks found at the dollar store, 3 in a pack. First I trimmed the ends with a rotary cutter or you could use scissors or an exacto knife.  I glued scrapbook paper on the front and back then trimmed the corners after the glue was dry.  I found that is helpful to put a piece a scratch paper inside the front and back cover until everything is dry.  I used ribbon for the handles and wider ribbon for the closure. Embellished and added Velcro under the ribbon to close. After it was embellished I glued paper on the inside to cover the ribbon ends. Very cute and easy to make.  I found this idea at Sisters' Stuff.
