Back to School Notebook–DCWV

Hello people! It is good to be with you on this, the first day of a holiday weekend! I have a really cute project for you using The Edumacation Stack from DCWV!

Edumacation Comp Book1

All the elements on this project, including the pennants, the tabs, and that cute owl were cut from my stack.  In the last few years, DCWV stacks have come with pages of borders, elements, and embellishments that really make each stack into a collection.

The bows that are “holding up” my pennants are made from some Hemptique twine I got from Really Reasonable Ribbon!  I also added a full page of patterned paper to anchor each tab and divide each section of the notebook.

Want a close-up of that cute little owl?  Of course you do. : )

I love those notch-end banners. I popped them up with some Therm-o-web foam adhesive. : )

  3. This is wonderful!! I have decorated the covers of several notebooks but have not made dividers. What a great idea! In fact, I was wishing the other day that I could have dividers in one of my books and now I see I can!!!

  4. Brit~ I love, love, love this!! The cover, the dividers and the banner are just perfect.

  5. This is absolutely fantastic. And so darn cute. Have to scraplift the idea for my Grt. Niece as today was her first day of kindergarten and I think this would be the perfect gift for her and mom. Thanks for the fab ulous idea!
