spruced-up journals?


although i dig a good moleskin, i've never splurged to buy my very own. i've never thought my scribbles were of that caliber; hence the dollar store journal. and the dollar store mac tac! usually i line my drawers with this stuff or the odd box, but thought it would be fun to do a little craft project with these one dollar journals and some sticky faux wood. here's my tutorial pics! ha!

thank you for this, i have thousands of these ugly journals/idea books! I cant seem to write my ideas and scribles in fancy journals, i feel like i am wasting them, but now i can make mine pretty!

your notebook is so pretty!
hooray for woodgrain contact paper!
it also works great on covering up those standard ugly plastic 3 ring binders too!
