This is an awesome tutorial from Doodlebug Designs Inc and design team member Lori Allred!
I was actually inspired to create these fun skinny notebooks when I happened upon this Pin on Pinterest. My curiosity got the best of me and after reading Kerry’s blog and check out her Skinny Notebooks, I decided I had to create some Skinny Notebooks too with the fun papers in the Snips & Snails Collection. So off to Walmart, purchased me some of those fun 5″ x 8″ notebooks and then a quick stop by our local copy shop to have them cut these in half.

Step 1 – Cut your cover paper to 5 11/16″ x 8 1/4″. The image below I’m showing you the inside of the paper, the owl print is on the other side.
Step 2 – Score your paper in at 2 3/4″ and 2 15/16″ and fold.
Step 4 – You’ll spend most of your time embellishing the front cover. I decided for this one I would create a band. Start buy cutting a 1 x 6 1/2″ strip of paper. I then wrapped the band around the notebook and adhered in place…it will naturally score itself. If you prefer then use your scoring tool to create a more finished list.
