sometimes it is just that extra touch to make your life not feel so mundane. i ripped off this idea from becky higgins' blog. so easy and a great way to get rid of all those pesky scraps of paper in your life.
first cut a piece of patterned paper 5 inches (or whatever width your notepad is) by 2 inches.
my notepad is slightly used.
glue the heck out of your paper, especially around the edges. i use herma dotto dots permanent adhesive. but a good glue stick would probably work just as well.
attach. embellish as you want. and voila!
isn't that better? the green just wasn't helping the chaos.
now if you have a half an hour go make a bunch for your friends. they will think you are so cool.
