Vintage Inspired Notebook Cover
Created By Alyona Savinova
Hello everyone! Today I am going to show you a very simple and fast way to decorate a usual notebook. To do this, I used fantastic elegant velvet ribbon with delicate crochet edges from May Arts Ribbons. All materials used are presented at the bottom of this the tutorial. For this project, I was inspired by the beautiful and harmonious pattern of simple paving stones. This is a very easy project, and you will see how quickly you can transform the cover of a simple notebook into vintage one.
Step 1: Cut the ribbon into equal pieces (about 1.5 inches each).
Step 2: Lay out the pattern with these pieces on the cover of your notebook until everything looks exactly the way you want.
Step 3: Adhere the pieces to the cover with either a fabric friendly glue, or adhesive tape. In my example, I’ve used adhesive tape.
To Finish: Decorate the edges with May Art’s Paper Raffia Ribbon and add a flattering embellishment (cameo brooch).
This is a super fast and elegant way to renew your favorite notebook, book, or photo album. Hope you like it!
