Notebook with Pen

I love making Post-It note holders with pens and I never thought to make notebook covers until I saw a post that by blogging friend, Marianne from, Paper or Frabric Crafter. These notebooks are the magnetic one's you can find in the dollar sections. I decorated the outsides to go with the theme of the paper. The notebooks can be different sizes but these are the cover instructions for these. I usually make the cover with a heavy card stock, like Papertrey Ink, so that it is durable.
Notebook size: 3 1/2" x 7 1/2"
Cover size: 7 5/8" x 8 3/8"
Score cover at: 3 5/8",  4",  4 3/8",  4 3/4"
Cut middle section about 1" apart to hold pen.
When using mini pens like these the score marks are 3/8" apart. Knowing that helps alter  the measurements for other size notebooks.

I filmed a video today of a Notebook with a normal size pen and a 4x6" Sketch Pad. It also has a Lori Boyd digi stamp that I colored with Copic Markers. So check back soon to see that.
