Fabric-Covered Notebook and Album

Summer is almost here...

DSC_0137.jpgAre you as ready as I am?

DSC_0139.jpgI've been planning some fun things that I want to do this year like going to the pool and the beach, taking a weekend trip to pick fresh peaches, cheering for our local minor-league baseball team, the Fourth of July fireworks show.


Ahhhh. I love this perfect time of year.


I'm a list-maker and I wanted a pretty notebook to keep by my side or in my purse for planning.


So I painted the top of my spiral with Mod Podge and laid fabric on top, smoothing it out with my fingers. Then I painted another layer of Mod Podge over it and let it dry. 

The big "E" was made with yarn and a hot glue gun. I added ribbon to the edges to cover the less-than perfect cut fabric.


This also works really nicely on photo albums for gifts or your coffee table.

Look at my little stink three summers ago.

I love it.

  1. Great idea! I'm a list making too! It looks like you have a fun summer planned!

  2. Is it just me, or is there something quite exciting about a brand new note book? Lovely idea x
