TIPsy Tuesday - Covering a Notebook



It is time again for another notebook.  I've filled up my last one with lists and scribbles.  So here is my latest cover.  The video is about doing the base cover.  You can apply this to virtually any spiral bound notebook without having to have a special punch or binding too.  You just need a regular hole punch, a good liquid glue and a good tape adhesive.  I'm using Creative Memories tape adhesive and Mono Tombow glue.

Watch at  YouTube




The rest of the cover can be any pretties you like. I do try to keep mine flat so I'll be able to write in the notebook without any lumps in the way.  I wish I could doll it up with buttons and other embellishments but this is more functional.

Thanks for watching!
