PURSE NOTEBOOKS!!! {{tutorial}}

My new favorite CUEGLY thing!
With an EXacto-Knife I cut one corner edge of the notebook cover. Then I took that piece and turned it over and used it to cut the same angle on the other side.
Below I've turned over the first cut-off corner and am ready to cut the second!

Then take the EXacto-Knife and while using the cut edges as a guide, start slices through the layers of paper untill you've reached the back cover!

Whip out your Mod Podge and pick your front cover paper!
Below I traced and cut out the shape of the cover and THEN Mod Podged it.

Below I FIRST Mod Podged the paper onto the notebook and THEN cut it!
I FOUND THIS TO BE A LOT EASIER THAN THE FIRST!

Once you've ModPodged your cover on, let it dry while pushing down any small bubbles. Decorate the cover how you want it and THEN ModPogede the Back cover paper on!
Below are the COVERS to the 5 notebook PURSES!
Below are the BACKS of the notebooks! On the back I put a place for the owner to right their name or whatever they please!
Here's a FRONT/BACK view with them open!
Here's an embellishment on the Ribbon handles I hot glued on!
I would suggest this for all little girls (and adult girls!)
SO STINKEN CUTE!

I got this marvelous idea from SISTERS STUFF!
She kept the book closed by adding a ribbon, flower and velcro! (SO CUTE)
