100 Yen Craft Calendar and Notebooks

Had a great morning yesterday with a friend making 100 yen craft Calendar and Notebooks. These are great little gifts that anyone can make! Your local 100 yen store presently have a wide selection of calendar and notebooks which can be dressed-up and transferred in creative masterpieces. All the decorative tapes, paper and other items are also available in all 100 yen stores.  Very simple, but a great thank you gift!

Steps to make a 100 Yen Craft Calendar and Notebooks

Step 1. Chose your colour palate and select paper, ribbon or other decorative items to apply

Step 2. Cut to the size of the notebook and glue or tape into place. Paper will set well if you apply glue with a paint brush.  Patterned masking tape is very easy to apply and stays firmly in place. Using Ribbon is a little more tricky, secure firmly, but looks great!

Step 3. There really are no guidelines, let your imagination go wild.

Project complete and ready to gift!
