Take the Challenge: Cover It

Can you believe Summer is over? Well, September means back to school and what a fun time for a back to school Take the Challenge. Do you remember having to "cover" your textbooks? Do the kids still do that? Nowadays they have really cool covers, not the plain brown paper bags from when we were growing up.

This month's challenge is to "Cover It". Your challenge is to cover some sort of "notebook/pad". You can go with the rage and create a post-it note holder, take a mini compo book and make a sweet cover, or even a calendar for all those back to school events to remember.

For my project I covered a Jr Writing pad (5x8) with chipboard. The chipboard piece was cut to 10 3/4 x 8 1/4 and scored at 5 1/4 and 5 1/2. I covered the top of the pad with a strip of Cosmo Cricket Early Bird paper and attached it to the chipboard with Scor-Tape. For the front of the cover I used a variety of Cosmo Cricket Early Bird papers and the A+ Darling set from Clear and Simple Stamps.
