{'s Easy as 1.2.3...& A Winner}

Howdy Friends! Today I'm sharing a quick little binder make over.  Amanda, @ Funny Days with Mommy & Maddie, highlights all the fun projects she does with her cutie pie for Toddler School.  One day she included a link to Making Learning Fun, where she gets some of her printables.

I clicked on the link & then spent the next 2 days downloading fun A, B, C, pages to do with my little monkey.  As I started printing them, I figured out I easily had over 100 pages....UGH!  What's a girl to do?

I stole a 3 ring binder from my huzby's stash, and busted out the mod podge & scrapbook paper.

I covered the front, back & spine of the binder with mod podge & scrapbook paper.

Then I took some chipboard A, B, C letters, added a coat of mod podge and covered them with some fun Martha Stewart micro beads.

Once those were dry, I added a layer of the Mod Podge Dimensional Magic to the top.{extra support to keep those pesky little beads in place!}

Then I waited...waited....and waited for it to dry.  Once dry, I used my handy dandy gorilla glue and glued them to the front of the binder {and used my SUPER HEAVY cast iron skillet to hold it in place while it dried!} Those bad boys aren't goin' anywhere now!

Once it was all complete, I hole punched all the print outs and put them in the folder.  Now I have a shiny new place to store the monkey's ABC learnin' supplies.  I can't wait to get started.
