Idea Keepers make great gifts – so two more were created to increase the Gift Stash!
This post also includes improved details on folding the corners so raw edges do not show (or fray!)
- Three 62 cent notebooks
- WAYYYYY too much fabric
- About 15 minutes of time
Cut fabric and adhere to outside cover (see 62 Cent Idea Keeper for steps involved).
Cut triangles of fabric from upper outside corners of front cover. Leave approx. 1/4″ to 3/8″ fabric between corner and cut edge. (Photo 2)
Fold spine cut edge to inside forming a 45 degree angle along upper edge of front cover (Photo 3).
Repeat these steps with lower edge of front cover and apply spray adhesive to inside of remaining fabric flap.
Fold flap down smoothing fabric to avoid bumps (Photo 4.)
Fold raw edge of triangle cut down to form corner. The vertical fold line should follow the edge of the notebook.
Repeat these steps for lower edge corner.
Spray fabric flap with adhesive.
Fold fabric flap in and secure, smoothing to avoid bumps.
An extra bit of glue on the corners is a must! (Photo 7)
Place a piece of foil between the first page and the cover and turn notebook over.
Repeat these steps for the back cover.
Cut decorative papers for inside covers and adhere as noted in 62 Cent Idea Keeper.
Bead page markers and embellish as desired.
Ready in Gift Stash when the need arises for a useful and personalized gift!

These notebooks are lovely. I want to make a big pile!
SOOO pretty! I just made some with scrapbook paper, but I REALLY love the combination of fabric AND paper you use . . . and the page markers! Thanks for sharing!
