Hybrid Project idea Notebook-Journal

I have a hybrid project for you today!! This project was inspired by a gift I received from my sister. I printed papers and elements from my Wildflower kit to cover a regular size notebook. Then I took ribbon and cut and tied them around the spiral. This project is a quick and easy way to take something ordinary and a little punch to it. These notebooks would be great for kids to take to school or for a quick personalized gift.

One note i would recommend using some sort of glue dots or spray adhesive rather than a glue stick. I used a glue stick at first and had to go back and reglue. lol Maybe roughing up the surface would help because it does seem a little glossy. Also I printed on regular computer paper which turned out fine. However one little spec of water wrecks it. (as you may see in my photo this happened to me) So if this is something you want to last a while or for small children I would recommend putting some kind of protection on the cover.

It's also a good idea to take a small sample of the papers with you when picking out ribbon. I forgot which is why my green isn't exactly the perfect match uggh! Oh well you get the general idea right? lol

Don't forget you can't pick up my Wildflower kit at Digital Scrapn Designs for only $3.99 the entire month of March! Grab it before the sale ends!
Please stop by the Gallery and show us your lo's. And join a challenge in the forums.

Reading these kind of posts reminds me of just how technology truly is undeniably integral to our lives in this day and age, and I am 99% certain that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as memory becomes cheaper, the possibility of transferring our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could encounter in my lifetime.
