Be my Valentine

Around our house we have to make our valentines day gifts. This year was a hard one, I was torn between a photo rubik cubes and these.... fabric covered notebooks.
I chose the fabric covered notebooks for a lot of reasons, one being my sister in law shared with us a great idea of a "card notebook" instead of giving cards you write your own to pass back and forth, the other frugal me wanted to stop wasting a hundred notebooks, and use binders instead for our lists, and notes back and forth!
So here we are with our plain yucky looking binder...
Any fabric will work, cut larger than the binder, cut out the corners so they fold better....And voila! One pretty binder:)For added neatness, I coverd carboard peices and coverd them with fabric as well. On this one ( Our card binder) I added Bible verses in the front cover, then a picture o fus printed on fabric for the back cover, using the glue gun, I attached it to cover the raw edges of the front fabric.

Here is our pile of binders now:)

It was so easy I am thinking I am going to use this for our May long weekend group craft!
