Craft knife or box cutterparental supervision advised
To begin, choose a piece of scrapbook paper that is large enough to completely cover the front of the notebook, leaving the black binding visible. Spray the back side of the scrapbook paper with adhesive spray. Carefully line up the edge of the paper with the black binding on the cover. Press in place and turn the notebook over and press firmly.
As you can see there will be edges that need to be trimmed.
Open the notebook so that the cover is lying face up. Use a craft knife to trim off all but about half an inch. Fold that extra over onto the inside of the cover. Press firmly.
Now that the notebooks are covered, you will want to decorate them. Cut simple shapes from contrasting scrapbook papers and use a glue stick to attach them to the front. For girls, simple daisies are easy and look great! For boys, a rocket or a truck is simple using standard shapes like triangles and squares.
