Notebooks tutorial

Hello my dear friends, this is Michele from France, and i am really happy to be here with you today, to share this little tutorial !
I have two wonderful daughters who love writing and drawing on little notebooks and this mini album from the collection "zoology" is perfect for making something different and cute :) You'll see, it's so easy and the kids love it so much that you have no excuses !
Just one more thing before we start, please, forgive my not perfect English ;)

For making this, you'll need:

album zoology
double dots ribbons
double dots designs cardstock papers
combo stickers
chipboards 12x12
papers and spirals

First, i reproduced the shape of each page on a cardstock paper and to save time, i glued it on a second cardstock paper and cut it. So i have a stronger piece of paper with two different colors very quickly.

I cut a few sheets of paper, and i made the holes for the spirals. I just stick the last piece of paper, directly on the cardstock.

As it's for kids, i added an eyelet to consolidate the hole. 
Now, all you have to do is simply decorate it, and of course, don't forget the name of the kids ;)
I added a little note : "this notebook belongs to..."

 I tied some pieces of ribbons on the ring, i love it, it's like they have a bow on their head :)

As you seen, it's fast and easy to make this cute little things ;)
I'll be really happy to see yours !
thanks for reading me,
take care of yourself,
