Hi CVS friends today I have a simple tutorial on how to make your own Travellers Notebook cover, they are simple and quick to make! I have used the stunning Happiness collection.

I cut two pieces of paper at 11.8 x 8.6 inches. I chose the EXPRESSIVE paper, so I needed two of these wanting to use each side for my TN.

I used a firm  cardstock to add strength to the cover, cutting two strips and adhering to each side as above. I then adhered the two paper pieces together and added machine stitching around the edge. I then punched five holes, two at opposite ends and one in the middle, this is where you will thread and create a loop with thin elastic.


Now it’s time to embellish, I have used the gorgeous die cut ephemera floral blooms, adhering with foam tape to create dimension, finishing off with a die cut butterfly and a word sentiment from the Accessory StICKER sheet.

I added two pockets to the inside. Using BOTANICAL BLISS paper I also made them different sizes. Before adhering to the inside of the TN I added machine stitching to the edges to add texture. I prettied these up by adding more flowers, butterflies and word sentiments,

I have inserted a unruled white TN note book and to tie it in with the cover I added a water colour paint smear from the CLEAR STICKER sheet, a die cut butterfly and another word sentiment sticker.

To finish off I added a cluster of pretty bits to my elastic loop that holds the TN closed.  And there you have it a TN cover personalised and created using my fav collection.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you are enjoying all the Travellers Notebook inspiration from the design team. See you again soon!
