For my project, I altered a notebook with a teacher in mind. 

Front Cover
Inside front cover with pocket, various journaling cards, and identity label.
Pencil pouch with crayons, highlighters, and posties
One of five labeled dividers
The back of the labeled-divider page with a small pouch
Inside back cover with pleated pouch
Back cover with ribboned, large paper clip

Also, included in the are three page protectors.  When making this notebook I deconstructed a school notebook by removing the wire binder.  The notebook had been prepunched for inclusion in a three-ring binder.  The ribbon is full on the binder clips but can be removed per individual taste for ease of opening.  In addition, with the binder clips pages can be added as needed.
Thanks for joining us!

Next stop?  Hop on over to Jackie's blog - Stamping Sister to her wonderful creation and a chance to win another prize.

It's a new day! Choose a new way.... choose happiness,
