Hi Louise here to share a cute, quick and easy project with washi tape and a cheapo note book.
I started with this cheap pen and notebook from our local discount store
I sealed the notebook with modge podge, once it was dry I painted the notebook white with acrylic paint. When it was dry I covered with strips of washi tape, I also wound another design of tape around the pen.
On the inside I stuck down white card to hide the ripped ends of the tape.
I added elastic to the back to make a band to flick around to the front to hold the notebook shut. I also made a loop in the front to hold the pen in place. I attached the elastic using my eyelet fastener and large eyelets
