Cute comp books! I use a glue stick to adhere the covers, (I am like the glue stick queen!) this way you can really get the edges and corners without fear of them lifting and you get a little more play time to get your paper just right. I use red liner tape for the spine of the book and add a ribbon (for a bookmark) before I adhere the spine down. I've made quite a few books for friends this way and have not had any problems.

For mass producing I cut my paper all at once and a little bigger than needed, since each book seems to be just a bit different in size, and then adhere and trim to size with a craft knife. I can usually whip out 4-5 an hour this way, including embellishments.

At least I'm not the only one! I don't want to under price and make it hard on the other sellers, but I don't want to over price and not sell anything. I've decided not to do cards - from what I've heard from other sellers in my area, they just aren't selling unless they are $1 a piece. I'll concentrate more on things they can give for gifts. I love to package things, so everything will be packaged and ready to give, but still visible. I'm going to have out samples for them to see and touch, and then everything packaged. Lots of zip bags with toppers and such. Boxes for the soaps, gift tags in boxes with clear lids, etc. It will look good, and keep the items safe from little fingers

I think I can get a little more for them with the frame. I will make some with the frame, and some without. I am thinking $6 with the frame and $4 without, but I'm not sure yet. I need to do the math and see how much they are going to cost me.

On hers she added people's names, so I am also going to be making these for Christmas gifts for my cousins. I think they will REALLY like them. I will make them to match their houses/rooms.

Magnetic Name Frame
Yes, these are fun and easy to make. I made one for a baby shower gift and my daughter liked it so much that she wanted one for her room too, so I have continued to make them. I left the glass in them, but think that they look good without as well.

What program do you normally open your pictures with? For a fast simple program I use Microsoft Picture Manager, there are several different ones out there and all of them you can re-save your picture as smaller size.

If you right click on the photo and select "Open with" it will give you the options that are on your computer. With Picture Manager you select "Edit Pictures" and one of the options on the right side that pops up is to resize.

Remember not to save your original as the reduced size, because there is no getting it back, but if you save the new resized photo under a different name then you will have two pictures of the same thing, but one will be at the original size and the other at the smaller size. I hope this makes sense and is helpful.

Thanks for the info. I will keep this in mind for the future. I ended up just changing the setting on my camera and retaking the pics and it worked.

Talking WM Score!!

Speaking of comp books, I lucked up at WM today! The shelves were still empty in the regular office supply section, but two workers were at the far end setting the back-to-school aisle so I went around to the other side to see if I could spot the shelf space for the .25 comp books. To my delight, there was a box of 20 comp books sitting on the shelf so I snagged it, put it in my buggy, and hurried to the checkout! How awesome to get 20 comp books for the price I will charge for one finished book ($5!!)!! WOOT!!!

Wow! 4-5 an hour! It took me a whole day to do 4. I will have to try the glue stick. The elmers no wrinkle works well but only got 4 journals from one container. I also ran out of red line tape : ( Have to go shopping again for more adhesive before I can put any more together. I had only put a ribbon bookmark in the butterfly and floral journals, but after talking to a girl at work today that journals, she said one of the things she likes in journals are the ribbon book marks so I have added them to the other two and will put them on the rest that I make. What do you charge for yours and what do you display them in to keep them clean. How many usually sell per show? I have 4 shows and have no idea how many to make. Would love to see some pics of yours.

Thanks Kate. I guess I am heading back to WM this week for more books and adhesive. They only had 11 last week and said more would be in this week. I wish they carried red line tape. Looks like I also have to make a trip to the craft store too. How many do you usually sell per show? Do your prayer journal sell faster or your regular ones? Two of my shows are at churches so I thought I would try some prayer journal too.

Thanks for everyone who posted pictures of their comp books. They are all great and have given me new inspiration. I usually use Beacon 3 in 1 Craft Glue for chipboard albums so I will probably use it on the comp books. It takes a little bit to dry so you have time to move things around, if needed. The ATG gun is so permanent that there is no room for fixing anything.

One question, do you line the insides of the front and back covers and do you ink or paint the edges?

Thanks!

Pat

I lined the inside of both the front and back covers with a complimentary color cardstock and stamp "This book belongs to" on the inside front cover.

Have any of you made these for craft fairs?

http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/re...oldernotebook/

I found some fun file folders and am making them. They are kinda neat and the folders are so pretty that I've not put any embellishments on them. Do you think that these would be good for craft fairs?

Thanks! I made several last night. I'll take pics and post them and then, if you'd be so kind, let me know if you think I need to embellish them at all. Like I said, some of the folders are very pretty and textured/embossed. And, I did do the "matching" RSVP pens as well--which, aren't so easy to do with heavy file folders! LOL

Thanks again!

I saw this tut a few weeks ago and liked it so much that I printed it out, but I keep forgetting that I need to get folders. Where did you purchase your folders at? I saw some cute ones at Hobby Lobby, but forgot to look at what the price was and forgot about this project that I wanted to try. I guess I should head back there. BTW, I think these would be great for Craft Fairs!

I found some on clearance at my local Staples! Go figure! And I've picked some up here and there when I thought they were nice. I've been stashing them--now to make them. I'm good at stashing . . . too good.

I have been whipping out some composition notebooks! I use my ATG gun, which I love because it is so quick and easy...although it doesn't have the reposition-ability that other methods would. Question--for adding a bookmark to these, what are you adding to the end of the ribbon? I just can't quite picture it in my head. Thanks!

Personally, I am not adding anything to the end of the ribbon. I simply use ScorTape to attach one end of it to the spine under the cardstock cover and cut it so it is long enough to hang out the bottom of the book. Then I simply cut the ribbon on an angle with a pair of sharp scissors and it's done!

I do the same thing. You could add beads, charms, etc to match the paper/theme but remember to add this into your cost factor when selling.

Thanks so much! I will try that on the next note book I make. Do you seal the end with anything to keep it from fraying?

I have been working on an altered clipboard this evening. I used Modge Podge and got lots of bubbles. I'm trying to search for directions; maybe I'm not doing something right.

I have a question - where do you ladies find the listing for craft fairs in your area? I've found three in my area but only because I knew people who worked the fairs. Thanks.

Default pictures in my gallery

Ok, after months of lurking, I'm finally starting to post some things. I put a picture of a tile coaster in my gallery and some of my recently made composition notebooks. I plan on selling the coasters 4 for $15 and the notebooks with pens for $5. Take a look if you'd like, and please be kind!

I do not seal my edges. I have about a 3" tail of ribbon that hangs out the bottom, so I'm not really handling the "cut end". So far, it's not frayed.

I have to be honest here and say I hate Modge Podge. I always get bubbles, be it lunch tins or clipboards I'm altering, I always get them. I did read somewhere that if you slightly dampen your paper and then apply it, it's not suppose to bubble. I have not tried that, because I got too frustrated with it before and now the bottle is buried somewhere in the deep dark recesses of my craft area! (Is there a face for "smirk"? lol)

The composition notebooks are great. I love the ribbon bows on them and the tile is wonderful too.

I was on my way to WM yesterday (it's in another town about 1/2 hour away) and on the way there, DD got sick. So, I turned around and didn't go in. I don't participate in a craft faire until Christmas time so hopefully, I'll be able to grab some for the $.25 price later.

I love what you have done with the comp books. I am now inspired to start on the ones I just bought at WM!

Thanks for posting your pictures!

Very nice comp books and I love the image on your coaster. They all should sell very well. I haven't decided on the price of my comp books yet. Last year I sold single coasters for $4, set of 4 for $15 and set of 4 in a gift basket for $20. Pics are in my gallary.

What is the best price you have found the regular sized Composition notebooks? Is $1 about right?

Walmart has the regular size for 25 cents each right now, but the minis are 77 cents each. I got the last 11 regular size at my walmart but they said they were going to restock this week for back to school at the same price. I am going to check it out tomorrow or Saturday. How many does everyone make. This is my first time making them for the shows and I have no idea how many I should have.

Oh, I thought all the hype for the 25 cent notebooks were for the small ones. Well then I guess I better go and check out Wal-Mart soon.
