Princess Notebooks...

A sweet Valentine gift for my girls. I had some jr. notebooks cut at Staples last weekend and for some reason, I thought they would be the same size as my old ones...they are not! I used to be able to get 2 notebook covers out of 1 sheet of 8.5x11 cs, but this time around I noticed my notebooks are cut 1/4 inch larger. I'm sure if I do some finagling I might be able to squeeze one more cover out. Anyhow, the girls love to doodle and draw dolls all day long so these will be perfect for travel and on the go! The paper is from a 12x12 Princess Pack. There are several sheets included that have the clip art (castle and princess I used here), which is easy to cut and matte. My nesty dies did not fit a matte for the princess so I used some patterned paper and buttons to add texture.
Finished them off with monograms. I'm hoping I can keep these a secret until Valentine's Day!
