composition caddy tutorial

Earlier this week I showed you my first try at a composition caddy and said a tutorial was coming.  Since I already had it written and just needed to add pictures it went pretty fast and I'm happy that I can share it with you today!

Version 2.0 was made with a Michael Miller Tammis Keefe print, a Lizzy House 1001 Peeps, and a Moda Sweetwater newsprint.

The tutorial is for those standard size composition books we all know and love.  I wanted to be sure to tell you about a great Primary Journal version for kids by Mead.  It has a space for a picture at the top and lines for writing at the bottom; great for that budding author/artist in the house!

ETA: I replaced the really huge file with a smaller one!

I'd love to know if you make one, and of course give me a shout if you find 
anything wrong or have questions!

I love the bags! Your mom made me a reversable one for with a christmas design a couple of years ago. I use them for everything including diapers etc.

So cute!

I’d love it if you shared this with the Fun Family Crafts audience.
FFC is similar to Craftgawker but it only features kid friendly tutorials.

Looking forward to seeing what fun crafts you submit!
