One spiral or marble notebook

Decorative paper (enough to cover front and back covers)

Glue stick

Exacto knife




Flip paper upside down. Trace each cover once.

Cut out the paper using the scissors.

Adhere paper onto covers. The marble notebook allows you to line up your paper better due to the binding strip.

Clean up any excess paper hanging over edges by opening the book and cutting away the paper with an exacto knife.

Optional- Use a pen to title your book with a fitting font. A silver paint pen works well.
