Silk Covered Notebook

Silk Covered Notebook

Shazia, my best friend and my roommate, gifted me a beautiful silk scarf. It had the softest touch and a chic leopard pattern printed on it. I liked it so much that I started wearing it all the time – all the time, you guys; even on the coldest winter days when I refused to move even an inch away from the room heater. On one such day, I smelled something burning – something that I had firmly decided  never to lose.

After a couple minutes of screaming, I was left with the remains of a once beautiful scarf. There was no way I would’ve thrown it out and after a little brainstorming, this DIY came together. If you had a similar accident, read on and find out how to make a statement silk covered notebook in only a few minutes.

This a simple notebook measuring 18 cm by 12 cm.

I used a sturdy page from a sketch book to cut out the shape shown below. I folded the shape along these dashed lines to make it fit snugly around the notepad.

I placed the cutout on the scarf and cut that too, leaving a margin of almost an inch all around. I fold this extra length and glued the silk to the paper cutout.Silk Covered Notebook

To hide the mess, I cut a simple rectangle and pasted it on the inside. This inner rectangle is a centimeter smaller than the outer one, so you can see a narrow strip of the leopard print inside too.

I folded the extra part on the top right side and hot-glued it in place.
