How to Make a Fabric Covered Binder


The pictures do not do this justice but trust me this is a really cute idea! Wish I had come up with it but it was a MOPS project.

Materials Needed:

1 binder
fabric of your choice
scrapbook paper
ribbon
spray adhesive
craft glue stick
scissors


Steps to Make Your Binder:

1. Choose your cloth, wrap around binder. Secure edges like you are wrapping a gift. After you are sure it fits, go outside and spray the adhesive all over the binder and the cloth. Wrap around the binder - smoothing the fabric as you go.
2. Cut a piece of ribbon and secure inside the front and back cover. It does not need to go all the way around because the paper will cover the ends.
3. Choose two pieces of scrapbook paper and spray with adhesive. Put in front and back of notebook.
4. Keep notebook open to dry.

Easy and cute! HINT: Get a coupon from the Sunday paper for Michael's because the adhesive is $10 a can.
