I found a plain pink canvas notebook at Staples on clearance. It was a great price so I bought two of them (the only two they had - thank Goodness I didn't need to rely on myself for restraint).
But once I got them home they seemed a little Blah. They were cute and all, but would I actually use them? Probably not. They were wide ruled and I like college or narrow ruled - narrow is my preferred choice but much more difficult to come by.
So now what - of course I wasn't going to let them go to waste.
My daughter had a pair of jeans that she outgrew. They had these cute little butterflies on them. In total Athena style - I cut those butterflies right off the jeans.
What a great combination - butterflies and notepads. I broke out the fabric glue and glued the butterflies right onto the canvas notepad. And since my mother in law loves butterflies, it made a special surprise possible for her.
I share my projects at some great link parties.
