Felt Journal Slipcovers!

Felt Journal Slipcovers!
Great for Summer Camp or Back to School!
 Perfect craft for kids and teens...and then they have a 
journal to keep track of fun memories!
Notebook (I used mini composition books, 3 for $1)
Hot glue or fabric glue

Cut a piece of felt for the cover.
It should be ½” taller than your notebook (so ¼” will hang over on the top and bottom edge)
It should be able to wrap around your book and have 5 additional inches, so you end up with 2 ½” excess on either end to make the pockets
With the notebook in place, mark where the flaps should fold over. 
Run a thin strip of hot glue along the top and bottom edge and fold over the flap.
Leaving a pocket.
Repeat for the other side.
(if using fabric glue, secure with clothespins and let dry completely)
Then slip the top cover into the flap pocket and repeat for the back cover.
Decorate with more felt and glue.
