I did a video a few months ago on creating the cover if you don't have a notebook style hole punch that matches the notebook you are covering. This technique works with any type of notebook. It's my most watched video. Here's the link: Spiral Notebook Cover.
Before I fitted the cover of this version, I used my Cricut to cut 6 large circles to allow my pattern papers and embellishments to show through. This trend of having elements behind your die cuts was a challenge over at Two Peas a few weeks ago I just didn't have time to do then. I thought it would make an interesting cover and allow the notebook to have some layers while still lying very flat. I also cut a layer of thin chipboard with the same circle pattern and placed it under this blue paper to give a little more depth.
It was so tempting to put buttons in those cutouts! I have to resist to keep this really usable.
