How to Make Beautiful G45 Projects with Few Supplies

Back to School Mini Notebooks

We love the beautiful ideas from our Design Team that don't use many products. It shows you that anyone wanting to craft can make it happen! Katie Zoey Ho shows you how to make adorable mini notebooks with just one piece of A4 printer paper and some Come Away with Me. Then, Lori Williams shares the most beautiful Come Away with Me card with some great tips on how to make a card pop.

But first, who wants to win this week? Just comment here on the blog or on Facebook to win this $35 prize pack of Time to Celebrate. Have fun and comment away!


Katie shares such a great idea, take only one sheet of paper and create a mini notebook!

"A short & quick way to create these cute mini notebooks using a single sheet of A4 printer paper, everything in just 4 simple steps." ~Katie
