Here is a very quick and easy way to
to make dull old notebooks more noticable .
Get yourself some daggy notebooks .
These were very , very cheap at the newsagents.
Trace the size of the notebook and add 1.5cm
to each edge . If you are going to make a few
of these glue your tracing to some thin card
to use as a template.
Trim the corners for a neat finish inside.
Use a marker and trace around the template
onto the paper side of applique paper .
Follow the paper manufactures instructions
and press the paper to the wrong side of your fabric .
Use paper scissors to cut the traced fabric out.
Peel off the paper and fit your prepared fabric
to your notebook adjusting as necessary.
Use a hot iron with no steam press
the front and back covers only on .
When you are happy with the covers press
the inside flaps to secure them .
Aren't they easy !
You can always add some applique
or ribbons to these and they can then
be on hand for quick gifts .
Christmas , I'm sorry , really isn't that far off
and you can make a stack of these
in no time , really you can .
