Car Notebook

After making the purse notebooks out of standard composition notebooks for my nieces, I decided to make one for my son . . . but a little less girly. He likes anything with wheels, so I made an attempt at drawing my own car shape - I'm actually really proud how it turned out. I didn't really want to put the handles on it like the purse ones, but I still needed a velcro closure. I don't really like the look of the closure on the front since it's not "car" like in the placement, but oh well.

Here it is open. I'm hoping he will use this with the crayon roll I made in a previous post - maybe in the car or to keep him quiet/busy during church.

  2. Maybe you could turn the car into a police car, and make the velcro closure on top look like the light... just a thought. The book is super cute, though. My boys would love them!
