Mini Composition Books, Oh My!

So I was at the dollar store where I live and I spotted these mini composition books in 3 packs, for a DOLLAR. Whoo Hoo! I grabbed 10 packs of them and went home and got busy. I must admit I like dealing with these better than the big ones. One sheet of 12 by 12 card stock pattern paper is enough to do 4 notebooks front and back and then the solid paper is less than half a sheet for the 4 spines. I was able to make all 30 of them using just 1 full roll of ATG. I calculated my cost in these and it works out to be 58 cents a piece when you factor everything in, and I am thinking of selling these for a buck at my craft show next month. It took me 3 hours to make all 30 of them in one sitting. I made 4 of each design and then I have two more to make of the polka dot ones when I get some more. I think I am going to grab another 30 this week too just so I can make some more. I think these will be big sellers because they can fit in your car or your purse and I also think kids are going to love them too. I hope they move for a buck. I think they are so adorable and I love the patterns and colors. I think these are easier and cheaper cost in the long run than the big ones. Hope you enjoy...I had a request for a video of me making composition books, so perhaps this weekend when I get the others I will show just how easy these are to make...I might even be able to get it into just one You Tube video, LOL. Hope you enjoy.
