Notebook Tutorial

Today I thought I would walk you through making your very own note books as I showed you some examples a few weeks ago here.

Step 1: You're going to need the following supplies:
*A pair of scissors
*Glue (I used good ole Elmer's for this tutorial but I find that Bonding Memories Glue (1512) works well too and isn't as messy as Elmers)
* A paint brush (only if you're using Elmer's glue)
*Paper Trimmer (Z338)
*2 sheets of any B&T Duo paper of your choice (front and back of your notebook)

Now that you've got everything you need, let's move on to Step 2.
STEP 2: 

You're going to need to use your paper trimmer and cut your paper to 6 3/4" x 9 1/2" 

 Step 3:
Add your adhesive to the front cover of a composition notebook.
 Step 4:
Attach your 6 3/4" x 9 1/2" scrapbook paper to the front cover, lining it up with the edge of the notebook's binding.

Step 5:
Take a pair of scissors and trim the paper at the outer corners so you have rounded edge.

Step 6:
Repeat Steps 2 - 5 on the back side of your notebook

Step 7:
Decorate and embellish as desired!

I'd love to see your notebook creations! You can post them on my fan page on facebook at
