post it notebook instructions

Thanks for all the great feedback on the post it notebooks! Here are the instructions. My pictures are not doing too good today. We took a trip to the sound this past weekend and I'm thinking my auto settings were changed when Andrew went picture taking. Again, I'll get it fixed tonight.

You'll need 2 cover boards at 3 1/4 square and a binder board at 1/4 x 3 1/4. You can use chipboard or cut it from heavier cereal boxes. I haven't used cardboard but think it would work. Then cut your cover from cardstock to be 8 1/4 x 4 1/2. Come in 1/2 from each side and top and bottom and mark a score/fold line (don't score yet). Then notch the sides out. Doing the notch gives you a perfect corner. Cut your inside liner to be 3x6 3/4

Place cover boards on paper then place the binder board. Glue or tape down as shown in picture. Then score the fold lines along the top, bottom and both sides. Adhere the top and bottom first then the sides. The outside is done.

If you want to add ribbon to tie the book closed do so now on the inside cover boards. Then add your inside liner.

Run your finger along the joints and press the liner into the adhesive. Be sure to get a good fit around the binder board. If using glue let it set up.

Score around the joints and fold book closed.

glue along spine of post its and add to the book.
