I like making altered notebooks. They're fun to make, pretty and useful. And they make lovely little gifts.
Here's one I made using Basic Grey's Origins paper from My Scrapbook Nook's February Kit.
I like the browns, greens and yellow of the paper. Earthy yet bright. I also added a little ribbon on the side of the notebook which functions as a decorative bookmark. :)
Lots of layering here. I found the perfect Prima flowers to go with the patterned paper, topped off with the lovely BG glazed brad. And who wouldn't love that punched out butterfly? Cute! The only question remaining is, shall I give the notebook away or keep it for myself? ;)
