Mini-Notebooks from Playing Cards

I was at work the other day when I was struck by a thunderbolt of inspiration. Why not use playing cards for miniature book covers?

Once home (and may I say, this fulltime job really gets in the way of my crafting), I went straight for my Zutter binder.

Have you heard of this gizmo? It makes spiral bound notebooks. It’s awesome! For example, here’s my special Sara vs. Sarah notebook I made using a Doris Day album cover:

I decided to use this deck of reproduction Animal Rummy cards I found at a thrift store. Great minds think alike, apparently, because the very next day I was on the internet and came across a post on Craftster where someone did something similar with this deck of cards.

Well, presto-gizmo! 30 minutes later I had 3 of the cutest mini-notebooks you have ever seen! They are so cute I don’t even want to use them.

I think you should be given a "Think Tank" job. Your mind is going all the time. So many that space out at work - don't have anything to show for their time. I'd promote you! I know my grands - even though they are teens now - would love a cute notebook like you made. I'll just have to figure out how to accomplish it without the benefit of your gadget... just using your genius idea. Thanks for sharing!
