These decked-out notebooks are fun to make. Here are the materials you will need: a normal drab notebook with cardboard covers (not plastic), collage materials, markers, buttons, Elmer’s glue, and decorative jewels. Here are the steps: 1. Select materials and make choices about placement and design. 2. Adhere materials with glue, add words (Math, English, Back to School, etc.), and you are ready to write!
