Altered Composition Journal

It's back-to-school time

which means school supplies

which means, if I am lucky, getting a pile of composition notebooks when they go on sale in about a month for 10 cents a piece.

They're inexpensive and a fun way to use up paper scraps that are piling up from other projects.

Here's my most recent one.

I'm still loving vintage sewing patterns.  I don't think I'll ever stop loving old patterns, in fact I scored on about 30 the other day while out thrifting!

I cover the inside front and back to hide the school 'cheat sheets'.




  1. This is such a great idea! I saw some plain notebooks the other day on sale! I need to go back and pick up a couple! You are so creative! Hugs!

    1. Thank you. They are so easy to make and fun.

  2. I made these a couple of years ago and every august I plan on making some for the start of the school year for Etsy but never get around to it lol

    1. I was in the right time/right place a couple years ago and bought a box of them for 10 cents. Hope to find more this year.
