Covered Notebooks - Lydia

Hey everyone I am super excited to be here as a Deer Designer and here with my first post.

Today I am showing how to cover and decorate cute little notebooks.

The notebooks I use are $2-$3 for a 4 pack of A5 notebooks. I find these in the craft/notebook area in Big W I think the ones I have here are from the 'Collected & Co'. I like to have a few packets on hand for quick and easy birthday presents.

So here is how to cover and decorate your little notebooks - I pick my papers I want to use for the front and back cover. These books I only covered with printed paper on the front and just white card stock on the back. I have used the cute 'Desktop' collection by Becky Higgins Project Life 6x6 paper pad. All I used to stick the paper on is with my trusty double sided tape and then trim the rest of the paper off.

Once the front and back cover paper are on I use wash over the spine. I like to use 3 pieces. 

So then it's the fun part, you get to start decorating your notebooks. These 2 I have used some super cute coloured doilies from the Deer & Fawn Designs shop and the cute Chipboard stickers from the ''Desktop' collection by Becky Higgins. There's even a touch of hold in this collection.

So there you have it a cute, easy and quick way to make a little birthday gift or even just for yourself.

I hope you like my first Deer Designer post and I can't wait to see what you create if you do one of these notebooks.
