Notebook cover

Last night at our ATC meeting Barb showed us how to make a cover for a small pad of paper.   The pattern uses two 12×12 pieces of scrapbook paper, and between having the meeting at a scrapbook store and all the paper Barb brought in, there were a lot of choices!   This is the one I made.

There’s a strap with velcro that crosses the book to keep it closed.

Here is how it looks open.

Our theme for the trading cards was “bound”, and everyone make cool little books!
