How to Make a Sewn Notebook Cover with Cute Bunny on Top for Girls



– light colored fabric
– pink felt
– pen
– notebook
– scissors
– pink ribbon
– pink bead for the nose
– instant glue
– filling material
– black paint marker


Step 1

Fold the felt in half and place the notebook over it.


Let about 0.5 cm on both parts (left and right) and cut the extra felt.


Step 2.

Sew the two parts together until you reach about 3/4 of it.


Measure with the notebook if the height is OK. You should have about 2.5 cm to the notebook spire.


Step 3.

Put the ribbon here …


… and sew it in place.


Like this.


Step 4.

Continue sewing for another 3 cm then fold the felt backward…


And sew the parts together. This way, the upper part will be stronger.


Do the same on the other part.


The Cover will look like this.


Now separate the default covers of the notebook and put them between the ribbon and felt.


Like this.


This is our notebook 😉 Do you think we can make it cuter?


Step 5.

Of course! Let’s make a bunny! Draw a head with 2 long ears and two small paws on fabric.


Cut them out.


Place it again on fabric and draw the outline. Cut the second bunny out.


Like this.


Step 6.

Start sewing the two parts together. Let’s start with an ear.


When you arrive in this point…


… prepare the filling material…


… and fill the ear.


Then continue to sew until you finish the ear. It is important to sew only a little bit over half, then fill it because if you sew first and then fill, you can’t reach all the corners.


This is the ear finished.


Continue with the other ear…


… the paws, and close the head. Don’t forget to fill it when you sew.


The bunny head looks like this.


Step 7.

Choose a point where you want the nose to be…


… and sew the bead there.


Like this. (If you prefer, you can glue the bead there)


We will put the bunny in the corner.


Sew it in place.


Like this.


Add the notebook and you are almost ready.


Use the paint marker to draw 2 eyes and a mouth for the bunny 😉


And there you have it…the finished notebook cover…the  bunny will keep you company as you write in it…whether is a journal or a school notebook. I hope that you had a lot of fun!

Decorating Spiral Notebooks with Decorative Paper for Back to School Craft

Do you want to make your Plain Jane notebooks look awesome?! This is a great craft for teens (boys and girls – it doesn’t have to be flowers) who want to have the coolest notebooks in school. All you will need is a spiral notebook, some wrapping paper or decorative paper (or even a poster or magazine layout), and some glue…and about 30 minutes of your time. Find out how to decorate your spiral notebooks below.

Decorating Spiral Notebooks with Decorative Paper for Back to School Craft

Step 1

Step 1 Decorating School Notebooks

First of all, buy a cheapo spiral bound notebook…at the dollar store or at the store.

Step 2

Step 2 Decorating Notebooks

Then you will need to untwist the ends of the spiral wire. Then twist the wire so that it slowly comes out of the holes….do this until the wire is completely out.

Step 3


Now take both the front and back cover and put it out on the table (protect the table with newspaper or a garbage bag first). Put it on the table so that the sides that you need to decorate are facing up. Then spread glue on one side of both covers.

Step 4


Now turn the covers over so that the decorative paper is at the bottom. You can now see where you can cut the excess paper off of the covers.

Step 5


You can now use the holes that are in the spiral notebook’s covers to guide you to where you need to poke holes in the decorative paper. You can use an awl (a tool that has a point at the end)…or you can use a needle, hole puncher, or a ball point pen if you have no other options. Poke holes all the way down each cover.

Step 6

Now you just need to thread the spiral wire through the covers again and bend the ends so that it doesn’t come out again. Doesn’t this look beautiful? You can further personalize and decorate your notebook to make it more your own…but this is definitely enough if you don’t feel like customizing it further.
