Personalize that notebook

I have been on the hunt for a notebook that fits both my budget and style and thanks to my need to have a thousand notebooks on hand at any given moment Moleskine's which are awesome can get pricey, fast. So I figured I would make my own. I picked up one of those cheaper black and white composition books and two pieces of a kraft paper colored cardstock. Always on the hunt for fun crafting finds, I picked up that orange tape from Target for great deal too. I wanted something simple and clean and went with a triangular stencil I had laying around from my college days of hand drafting, oh the days. I used Fabri-tac to adhere the cardstock to the composition book since its my go to adhesive...what you don't have a favorite bonding agent? So there you have it, a super simple notebook for just a few bucks.
