Project Instructions

Step 1:
Cover the top and bottom face of your notebook with desired print from the stack, adhering in place with double-sided tape.

Step 2:
Cut a 2-5/8"x4½" rectangle from another print in the stack. Punch along one of the long edges with the small hole punch, giving it the look of a page torn from the stack. Run a straight stitch along the other three edges, 1/8" in from the outside. Adhere this to the front of the notebook.

Step 3:
Cut a 2¾"x3½" rectangle from another print in the stack. Adhere this to the front face of the notebook, centering it between the top and bottom of the piece from Step 2 and overlapping the right edge onto the cover.

Step 4:
Cut a shield shape from the stack. Adhere this to the right side of the rectangle in Step 3, overlapping the right edge onto the cover.

Step 5:
Cut a 2¼"x3¼" rectangle from another print in the stack. Run a straight stitch around all four sides, 1/8" in from the outside. Adhere this to the center of the rectangle in Step 3.

Step 6:
Cut a monogram letter from the stack; adhere it to the left side of rectangle in Step 3. Add a heart cut from the stack as well, adhering it in place to the right of the monogram letter, using an adhesive foam square. Finish by wrapping a section of twine around the front cover twice, threading a button in place, and tying off with a bow.

Tips

Make a template for the top and bottom cover of the notebook before you cover it with your favorite print. This will help avoid the possible stress of piecing anything together after it is cut.
