Sometimes the simple notebook is all what we need. Sometimes we want to have a nice handmad and altered notebook that fits our needs. This altered notebook was made with close to zero cost Michaels notebook to fit our travel summer adventures and as once a year we go for a cruise this is just a perfect project for this matter. The notebook was not covered from the inside and Irit just made the outer cover that later was glued over the original one. So easy to do and so effective! Irit made the main embellishment point as a shaker that is still very trendy and used the inside acetate piece of some embellishments packaging as the clear window as she always try to recycle her stash. This is a really inspiering piece created for our “To the Sea” Challenge.
