Mini Composition Book #1

I found these CUTE little composition books ... they are only 3.5" wide!  (Shown here with a 6" ruler)
I am SUCH a sucker for notebooks, note pads, list pads -- well, pretty much anything paper.  :-)

I bought several of these little treasures thinking they would be fun to alter and put in our Christmas Craft Sale ... so this is what I came up with for the first one:

No layers or anything that would get caught up in a purse, since the paper (K&Co) has the blue metallic pattern it's more for an adult. I die cut a tag from another strip of the paper (backed with white card stock) and tied some pretty fibres through the top.

Last year at the sale, I found people liked to be told what everything was. So rather than have them guess that this was a bookmark to keep in the note book, I made these labels on my computer (snowflake graphic by Lettering Delights) and used a Nestability to cut it out and attach to the outside of the packaging.

So ... one more thing to add to my (rather bare) stock for the sale.  

Thanks for stopping by today!
