Back to School With Betsy Sammarco

Want to add a little pizzazz to your students' notebooks?  Try these Notebook Dangles!

Notebook Dangles are a blast to make. You need to gather fun JBS supplies like Chipboard Buttons, Vintage style buttons, Label stickers, Chipboard Butterflies and Stickers, Rhinestone Bow Embellishments, Pearl and Rhinestone Charms, and anything else you can think of that would look cute dangling off a notebook.

To make your stickers "dangle-ready", mount them on a piece of chipboard and cut them out. 

You'll also need lobster clasps, jump rings, and wire - all of which can be found in the jewelry making section of any art store. Arrange your pieces and attach them together with the jump rings. The holes in the chipboard do not have to be big and were made simply with a paper piercer.

Here are the finished Notebook Dangles! I used the Schoolhouse Alphas to spell out my nieces' names, but you can use them for subject titles like math, english, etc.

Pin It!
