Hey, Smarty Pants

A happy Wednesday, friends!
I have a couple of things on hand today that I made to share at
SIMPLE STORIES
While perusing the 'decorate-your-locker' aisle with my daughter,
 she stated how much she wanted a couple of magnetic organizers to hang up...
my thought immediately went to Smarty Pants and how I could adapt
 her ideas into things I could make at home!  

First up is a very simple steno-styled notebook.
  I made this using a sheet of medium weight chipboard that I cut into two 4" X 6" strips.

Next, I cut four pieces of patterned paper to the same size as the chipboard and attached 
to each side with a strong adhesive (I love Sookwang double-sided adhesive).

For the front cover you can choose from a variety of designs and sizes of journal cards.
 Layer on stickers and add a few brads or other decorative pieces to make your notebook one-of-a-kind. 

The inner pages can be made up of notebook, graph or copy paper...just cut the pages down
 so that they measure approximately 1/4" smaller than the actual album. 
 Reserve the left-over cuts of paper for the project below. Use a binding system or rings 
to complete the notebook. You can also add a small magnet to the back cover
 so that it can be hung inside of a locker. 

Slip those extra cuts of paper from the notebook project into one of the SN@P Pockets! 
 Decorate the front and add a magnet to the back.
I took a wide 1" ribbon and applied it to the back of the SN@P Cuts opening with fabric glue.
 This would make a sweet teacher gift that could hang on the side of a filing cabinet. 

 Lastly I have a card that I made for the booth at the CHA-Summer Show!
I fell in love with the cute bus motif! What a great card for those bus drivers who safely 
transport our kids to and from school :)
