                           All you need is your notebook, scissors, tape rule, adhesive gum and fabric.You can do it yourself. Its very easy. Follow the steps below:

1. Measure the height and width of your notebook. Add extra 2inches to your measurement(this excess will be folded in).

                                                     2. Measure your fabric and cut.

                                                   3. Place the notebook on the fabric.                                                      

                  4. Apply gum(not too much) to the front cover of the notebook and place the fabric on it.

               5. Repeat the step 4 on the back cover of the notebook. 
6. Open the notebook, apply gum to the edges of the front cover and fold the excess fabric in. Repeat this process on the back cover.
