 Hello Doodlebug friends!  Stephanie here, and today I’m sharing some mini shaker notebooks I made using the School Days Collection.  

I found a pack of blank kraft notebooks on Amazon that are 4 1/4" by 5 1/2" - the exact size of an A2 card.  I chose a few 12 by 12 papers and trimmed them down to 8 1/2” by 5 1/2” and adhered them to the front cover with a strong double sided tape.  Next, I cut my apple and star shakers using shaped dies, solid color petite prints, foam and acetate and glued them to the front of the notebooks.  Of course you need  some sequins and seed beads or other toppings for the inside of the shaker!  
I used one of the All Occasion Doodle Cuts Large tag dies and black Sunshine alphabet stickers for the top title.  
Next, I decorated the inside cover and first page of each book using paper from the 6x6 pad, some This and That stickers and Odds and Ends die cuts. 


That’s all there is to it. You can definitely create your own notebooks with kraft cardstock and white printer paper and a stapler without too much trouble, I just had the notebooks on hand ready to decorate and embellish.  Of course these have a school theme, but use whatever collections you have and make a notebook to throw in your bag or backpack or kitchen drawer for notes or shopping lists or whatever!
