Hello Pebbles’ fans! Eva Pizarro there today sharing this tutorial for a quick Back To School project.
When I saw the lovely Woodland Forest collection I fell in love with the cute animals and knew I wanted to do a project that I could enjoy all the time. I haven’t yet jumped into the Planner wagon so this little notebooks are going to be perfect to take notes and make daily To DO lists.
To create the notebooks cut a piece of patterned paper the same dimensions as your printer paper and another paper with the same width but 6 in tall. Gather 10 plain white papers and stack them together.
Bend your two pieces of paper in half and cut a triangle from the smaller patterned paper.
Use some double sided adhesive and attach the paper to the back of your cover. This way you create a pocket on the inside of your notebook!
Put the cover on top of the sheets of paper and use some clips to hold everything in place.
To bind your book use a stapler or a sewing machine. I am using the Staple Board from our friends at We R Memory Keepers, it is very easy to use and you can staple anywhere you want!
Close your notebook and very carefully use a ruler and an exacto knife to create an even edge.
Use some die cuts or other embellishments to decorate. I chose not to decorate too much my notepads just in case I want to put them in my bag.
On one of the notebooks I added some alphas from the Warm & Cozy collection, you could even put a name on it and create a personalized gift!
Another idea is to use the 3×4 cards from this paper and use them as a message for your cover.
This is the inside of my notebook, with 2 little pockets to hold the papers I need and not loose anything! If you want you can even add more patterned paper pages and add more pockets to your notebooks.
I hope you liked this quick DIY and that you can make them for you of also as gift for a sweet friend!
Have a great day!
