Halloween Mini Notebook

Just playing around with some mini notebooks that I purchased really cheap at Walgreens some time ago.  I purposely purchased holiday colors...black, red and green for Halloween and Christmas.  The black one was screaming Halloween.  The orange polka dot paper is from My Mind's Eye and I just cut it a little smaller than the notebook and rounded the bottom corners.  The pumpkin was cut out from DP by K & Co, Spooktacular  paper pack.  I added the pumpkin to a scalloped circle black die cut with foam tape and adhered the whole image to the notebook.  A strip of black and a green zig zag (punch from EK Success) were added to the bottom.  I finished off with my favorite embellishment....some ribbon tied to the spirals and a felt flower button topped with a green button.  I am absolutely loving those little felt flower buttons!  I want them in every color.  I hope you like this idea and I know it's not a new idea, but a cute little gift idea that cost next to nothing to make.
