The Colorful Coverup Notebook

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Here's a fun and fuzzy way to dress up your plain notebook.


  • Spiral-bound notebook
  • Tacky glue
  • Pipe cleaner
  • Colored paper


1. Spruce up a plain spiralbound notebook with bold stripes by using tacky glue to stick pipe cleaners (the extrawide, fuzzy type work especially well) onto the cover.
