Decorated Notebook - Geek is Chic!

I'm back again with my second altered notebook, this one for my youngest daughter's teacher as a end of year thanks! The notebook will be given with a note holder that I made for her in April (see here).

The notebook measures 5x8 and I created my own cover for the top of the pad by cutting heavy weight card stock. I decorated this cover using paper from Echo Park "Paper & Glue" collection. The cover is scored about a 1/4 inch from the top and taped down to the notepad using black electrical tape. This will allow the book cover to flip open. I covered the electrical tape with washi tape.

The notebook is personalized for the teacher, which was very poorly removed in editing.

The image for my altered notebook is Smarty Pants from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. For this image I fussy cut and did a bit of paper piecing with the book and desk. The library card is called "Overdue Library Card" along with the push pin and faux washi tape which are from a die set called "clip it die set" are from Your Next Stamp.

Thanks for having a look at my teacher's gifts for this year.

Happy crafting everyone.
