mini comps

A cute, inexpensive project for kids & adults ~ creating paper covers for composition notebooks.  Three packs of miniatures can be found at dollar stores.

Applique the fronts & backs with a scene, words or use the paper design print as inspiration:

 

Or, simply cut the paper into different shapes or use strips for design:

The “M” above is an iron-on rhinestone applique.  Typically done on fabric & it works the same on paper (intense attention given during ironing!).

Creative credit for above notebooks goes to the two kiddos who live here!
