First of all, let’s make the structure. Cut the cover of the notebook in a patterned paper measuring 19,7 x 25 cm. Score the middle of the paper with a spine of 1cm.

To make the inserts, take 8 normal paper sheets measuring 24×19,7cm and fold them in the middle. Separate them in 2 inserts of 4 sheets. Use the Trim & Score Board for an easy control.

Let’s bind the inserts in the TN ! Use the Book Binding tool to pierce the inserts in the middle of their spine. Then repeat the process for the cover by piercing 2 ranges of holes all along the score you previously folded.

With a pink thread and an needle, sew the inserts on the cover and tie a knot to secure the points. You have more details about the sewing style in the instruction book, but don’t worry these are very simple to make !

This TN needs a tassel ! So grab your Tassel Loom and create a beautiful pink pompom. Then use the Crop-A-Dile to place an eyelet on the top of the spine. This is by where we’ll attach the tassel.

With the Word Punch Board (I love this tool so much!) create the word « summer » on a blue paper. Place an eyelet and a white paper on the back for the constrast. Add some pretty pearls on the tassel before attaching everything through the notebook spine.
