Make a little gift for someone special!!!!

As you know I love to make boxes and little projects, the following notebook is one of my favorites, I made one for all my collegues at work for there birthday, last year, and they could use it right away.

You need a Notebook size A6, cardstock 6 x 9 7/8 inches in your favorite colour, tape (I use Scorpal), a scoretool, scissors and designpapers.

Take the papers and score at 4 3/8, 4 6/8 and 5 1/8 inch and then fold as shown at the scoreline in the middle. I gave a cut from both from the top and bottem at 2 inch.

Fold the cardstock open one side is wider than the other, the small side should be at the left, put some tape at the left as shown above and put your paper together.

Take your A6 notebook and put it at the right side, use some tape or strong glue.

This is the final result. Now you can decorate it as you please. I'll show you mine on Thursday with the featered Image.

I hope you have a lot of fun making it!!!
