If you know me at all, I have two major weaknesses in life… office supplies and notebooks – I know, I’m super cool.  So, when I saw these notebooks at Target in their Dollar Section, I swooped in and snatched a few up!  

Today I am sharing how to add Scalloped Notebook Decals to even the simplest of notebooks.

How do I make a Scallop Notebook?

First, I drew out a 4″ half circle on a spare piece of paper and cut it out with scissors. I highlighted my pencil line with marker for ease of readability.  This became my scallop template.

Next, I traced and cut out 2 copper scallops and 1 gold scallop for each notebook.  I applied these to all three of the notebooks I got, so I ended up with 6 copper and 3 gold cut outs.

Then, simply remove the paper backing and apply to the notebook in a straight line.  I tried to position my scallops so they covered up the Mead Composition notebook logo on the front.  It’s still peaking out a little, but not badly.

I think the colors speak to fall but the overall feel is still clean and simple, so they can be used any time.   A win win in my book!

Please tell me I’m not the only notebook / office supply lover out there!  Who is with me?
