Fabric cover for your notes – Katya Ivanova

Hi everyone,

Today Katya is sharing a quick tutorial on how  to make a fabric cover for a sticky note block. I had a few small strips of fabric left over from making some albums and I decided to use up the fabric scraps. A quick present idea for schoolkids, students, office workers or teachers.

What you will need:
fabric
fleece
cardstock
brads
scrap paper
sticky note block
embelishments- buttons, brads, flowers -whatever you like.

Step 1

Get the base ready- cut out 2 pieces of cardstock measuring 8cm by 8 cm and one measuring 1cm by 8 cm. Iron the fabric

Step 2

Lay the cardstock on top of the fleece, leaving a small gap between pieces of cardstock

Step 3

Moving onto the cover, first glue the corners and then the sides. Before we cover the inside of the block with papers, we need to decorate the cover.

Step 4

To decorate the cover I added a small scrap of paper so that I could hide the ribbon under it. And then I added some brads, make sure you are using embellishments which wont easily come off.

Step 5

Final touch cover the inside with coordinating papers
