back to school diy: polka dot notebook

Hi guys, I'm here again. And unfortunately, my classes start this Monday (and I'm freaking out, I'm actually sad because the holidays were really good). So let's try to change the subject. I started reading Thirteen Reasons Why yesterday and today I finished the book and I considered fairly good (I'll write a review for you). So here we go. This year I really wanted to change, I did not want a notebook the same as other people and that's boring, is not it? Then I saw this idea seeing some notebooks that my aunt did and I just copied it. So c'mon, it's super easy to do! All you'll need is:

  • A Notebook
  • Wool Acrylic
  • Polka Dot Fabric
  • Strips of Lace
  • Ribbon
  • Hot Glue
1 - First, get the wool acrylic and cut a piece the exact cover of the notebook, not too large nor too small. Repeat again to the back. That done, paste with the help of hot glue.
2 - Now take the fabric and cut on the cover of the book, leaving a trailing space, when to fold on the inside. Start paste by spirals.
3 - Made the step up from both sides of the notebook, open the hood. With the nail, peel off the paper cover that makes the cover. Cut the fabric in the exact size and paste within the cover. That done, paste the cover of the cover back in place.
4 - As a last step, I leave it if you want or not. Mainly because the material I use has no translation, but it is a kind of lace, which can pass ribbon between them. Maybe where you live has another name, try search with the help of this photo.

And we finished. It's really easy to do and is so beautiful. Like me, you can try making your own pencil case matching with notebook. Cute, no? This year, I'm in love with polka dot then you will also find there in my backpack, which I possibly show tomorrow. That's it, let me nice comments, I love to read and answer them (:
