Ugly Paper

What do you do with ugly paper? I am a patterned paper hoarder and I have some really ugly paper. Cathy sent me a cute little notebook for my birthday, so I took her idea (her paper wasn't ugly!) and used my ugly paper to make notebooks for my daughter to take to college. She loved them and I got rid of some ugly paper!

These are super cute! I love the paper, 'cause I also don't think it's ugly. But I know what you mean, you can't use it anywhere because it's not your style. I have so much paper like that.

I love altering composition books! Each year in August, I pick up a bunch during the back to school sale at Target and then make them for gifts as well as myself! Using your ugly paper is a great idea! However, these papers don't look ugly to me! They look great!
