start by iron­ing the fab­ric to re­move any creases. lay the fab­ric face down on a flat sur­face and place the note­book open on top of it to mea­sure. Mark and cut out the fab­ric so it mea­sures 2cm ex­tra all the way around. stick a length of dou­ble-sided tape to the three ex­ter­nal edges of the in­side front cover of the book and lean the book open so it stands with the front side down but the rest of the book in the air. Pull the fab­ric into place and stick to the dou­blesided tape along each edge, pulling taut as you go. Fold the cor­ners as if wrap­ping a pre­sent and trim any ex­cess fab­ric. re­peat on the back in­side cover of the book. Cut two slits where the fab­ric meets the spine of the note­book at the top and the bot­tom, then tuck this down in­side the spine at each end, trim­ming any ex­cess if nec­es­sary. Cut a piece of card to stick over the in­side front and back cov­ers to hide the fab­ric edges.
