Cover a cheap diary

7 Nov

Always being frugal and trying to recycle what I can, I bought a cheap pocket diary for next year (2010) and covered it in some beautiful Japanese flower fabric.

All you need to do is lay the fabric out flat with the opened diary on top and cut round all sides leaving a margin of 1.5 cm. Glue down the edges of one side first, remember to snip little cuts top and bottom so the fabric is able to bend and fold over that page – – – and repeat with the other side.

You are then finished with a customised beautiful looking diary…no one need know it cost under ¬£1 plus fabric scrap! ūüėČ
