i genuinely believe you can never have enough stationery- in particular notebooks! writing 'to do' lists is a constant part of my routine (and my favourite way to procrastinate) so i figured i should personalise some of my stash.
the idea came to me when i found some seriously cute wrapping paper that was too nice to part with.. so i covered my notebooks with it instead!
if you have some notebooks in need of a facelift read on..
ruler and craft knife
1. cut out a section of wrapping paper 1.5" larger than the notebook when it's fully opened.
2. to re-cover the notebook, coat the original outer cover in craft glue and cover with the new paper. (smooth out any air bubbles on the surface!) next you'll need to wrap the excess paper over the edges, make 'v' shaped cut into the edges of the paper to help with the folding. glue down the flaps.
3. glue another rectangle of paper on the inside cover to hide all signs of the original (you can stop here if you just want to re-cover your books!)
4. as an optional touch you can stick on letters to personalise your notebook- i picked up these self adhesive cork letters in tiger store.
you can add slogans or names onto the cover- whatever takes your fancy!
but if you decide to leave them plain they still look pretty darn cute.
are you a stationery addict too?
