What you need:
-1 plain notebook
- Several sheets coordinating patterned paper
-Several sheets of plain-colored paper
-Clear contact paper
Step 1: Measure the paper that you want as your background cover, and cut it to fit your notebook. Glue down.
Step 2: Sketch your basic design on colored or patterned paper (we drew a tree and cut it out of brown paper). Next, cut out any details you want like leaves, petals, or feathers depending on your design choice.
