Paper crafts

Difficulty Level[]


Supplies Needed[]

  • Composition or other style notebook
  • Hot glue gun
  • Fabric, slightly more than the size of your open notebook
  • Iron
  • Scrapbook paper or other thick decorative paper
  • Scissors


Step One: Iron the fabric.
Step Two: Lay the notebook out on the fabric. Cut the fabric to about 1 inch larger than the notebook on all four sides.
Step Three: Begin gluing the fabric just over the edge of the notebook. If your corners are round like on a composition notebook, do a series of small folds with a dab of glue to secure them. Make sure to pull the fabric snug when gluing the second side.
Step Four: Cut paper to cover both inside covers of the notebook. This will hide your gluing of the fabric and complete the decorated notebook. Glue the paper to the inside of the cover.
Step Five: Let it dry and then begin writing.
