Little notebooks are a staple in my household. I love to throw them in my purse or in my planner so I am quickly able to jot down my thoughts when I have them. The girls love to use them to take orders when they are playing restaurant or to write down their spelling words for school. In fact, the moment I was finished taking these photos the girls were picking out which notebook they wanted for themselves. Too cute!

- 1 sheet cardstock
- 12 sheets copy paper
- spray adhesive
- Fray Check
Use your fancy gold thread and start at the outside of the notebook. Sew in through one hole and out through another. Make it so the thread is pulled taut, but not so tight that it rips the paper. Once all three holes are sewn through, tie a double or triple knot with the loose strands, outside the notebook.
At this point lay out your fabric, right side down. Take your notebook outside and spray the cover with spray adhesive being careful not to get the glue inside the notebook.
Place the sticky cover on to the wrong side of the fabric and smooth out the fabric.Take the Fray Check and run it down the edge of the cover. I made a couple of the covers with smooth edges. One cut with pinking shears and one with an intentionally frayed edge. The one with the frayed edge, I ripped the fabric to the approximate size prior to gluing on the notebook. After the notebooks are finished. I put them under a couple heavy books for a few hours while the adhesive cured and so they would lay flat when closed. I can't decide which cover is my favorite. Probably the green one. Or the one that looks like a swimming pool. Or the giant flower. I love all of them.
