How to Make a Sticky Note Book Cover
Arnold Grummer is a paper making product company that is well known for it's appealing handmade crafts. I heard about Grummer's Sticky Note Book mini workshop from art teachers passing by so I veered off the beaten vendor path and learned how to make a Sticky Note Book in 10 minutes. It was so easy and anyone can do it. You can buy Sticky Note kits on the Arnold Grummer website and search ideas for this and other paper making crafts. A starter kit goes for less then $10 and makes a great gift for the beginning diy'er. They also sell classroom kits at $130 that make 120 books, which includes 48 cover boards, 24 spine boards, 24 3x3 yellow self-stick note pads, 1 set paper templates and directions. I bought the Book Board kit for 24 Sticky Note Books at $7.95 for our resident Re-purposed Princess who will eat this up.
Choose a decorative cover for your book, remember you can pile on stuff when you're done. Trace the template on the opposite side and cut.
Place the chip board onto the paper and fold the sides, keep a space between the spine for an easy fold.
Glue sides of decorative paper onto the board and glue another piece paper to hide the board.
Fold your book.
I gave mine a theme: Pennies for Your Thoughts!
