Scholastic {1/2} Composition Book...

Ever since I saw this talented lady do one of these, I've been wanting to try it out!
 
While buying school supplies last week, I purchased some $1 composition books from Office Max, took them back to their printing department and asked if they could cut them in half for me.  The sweet, sweet lady didn't even hesitate...in fact, she almost seemed excited to do it for me!  I love when people love their jobs...especially when they're in customer service!

Here's what the composition book looks like with its other {1/2}...I free-handed rounding the other corner but if you have one of those heavy-duty corner chompers, that should do the trick!
 
 ----------------------------------------
I used CTMH's Scholastic Paper Packet and Scholastic My Stickease Assortment...I picked a layout I liked from a card front and went to work, cutting my pieces, distressing them and laying them out!  The hemp that's tied around the front is actually threaded through a hole I created using my piercing tool and wraps around the front cover.  I left it exposed but you could always add an extra piece of cardstock on the inside front to hide it if you'd like...
 
I plan on making MANY MORE of these cute little books!  So CUTE and easy!
 
Thanks, Miss B, for the inspiration!
