C omposition books can be used for so many things. Adding some pretty paper makes the composition book go from blah to beautiful.
Front & Back cover:
Cut two pieces of paper 7 X 10. This is for a standard size composition book. If you have a different size composition notebook - Measure your cover from edge of black binding to outside edge of cover and add 1/4 inch. Measure your cover top to bottom and add 1/4 inch.
Spine cover: Cut contrasting paper 2 X10. Again this is for standard size composition notebook.
Adhere paper to Composition Book:
Apply liquid glue to edges of notebook cover, apply next to black spine. Attach paper, line up paper next to black spine. Paper will stick out top, bottom, and front edge. Let glue dry a minute and then trim paper so it is even with edges of notebook.
Repeat this for back of notebook.
Apply tear & tape along black spine, along the print paper you applied to cover of notebook.
Cut 14" of ribbon.
Adhere ribbon to top of spine so that most of ribbon extends out beyond top of spine. I used tear & tape to adhere ribbon in place.
Attach spine paper cover to front of Composition Book along edge of print paper.
Place tear & tape to back side of spine paper. Wrap this paper around around spine, adhere to back of notebook.
Carefully trim spine paper at bottom of notebook, so paper is even with bottom of notebook.
