great for favors
I stamped these with a background color and a peacock feather stamp and used it as part of the favor for my girls. They loved how they came out. I had originally thought it would be a paper covered book but I guess canvas is actually more durable. I would buy these again and let the kids decorate themselves to take home!

I have recently discovered a new art form and wanted to create some notebooks that I had decorated myself. I used some pigment pens to draw my outlines and the canvas caused them to bleed together a little. Not enough to be a deal breaker, but I am going to try painting the canvas first before decorating the next one and see if that helps some. I also had it in mind that the books would be a little bigger than they are. I wish that Oriental Trading would do a comparison picture where they show it beside a normal notebook or something to fully comprehend the size. However I consider that a failing on my part since I didn't pull out a ruler to figure the size out. They are a great travel size so that really isn't a deal breaker either. I will most likely use these again as they were the best price I could find for diy notebooks.

Great Quality, But Thin Paper
I bought these for my daughter's craft type day and they were great! Although they were a little smaller than I expected. Also the notebook paper was a little thinner than average paper. So far they still are good quality, and my daughter and her friends liked them as well!

Look at the size before ordering!
I bought these to decorate as journals for 9 year old girls. When they came I was shocked at the size. They are very small. More like a notepad. They are good for decorating and the canvas covers allow for just about any decorations. Just wish I'd have paid more attention to the size.

I bought these for Christmas gifts for preschoolers. I thought they were very well made and looked great after decorating them. Perfect for children. Would like to see them with unlined paper for kids who can only draw or color.

I bought these for my Mothers of Preschoolers group to decorate and use as journals of the cute things our kids say. I somehow didn't catch that the covers are CANVAS, but they will work; we'll just decorate them with ribbons and buttons instead of scrapbooking paper. I was impressed by how sturdy they are.
