I was unable to see the instructions the page has so many commercials about a cereal brand that it does not let me get to the project. Too bad. Can you suggest other(s) crafts page(s) that doesn't require to jump thru so many commercials?

Hi Jenny, we're sorry you're having trouble. Feel free to look around our site to find other DIY projects that may have less advertisements. Have a nice day!

What a cute and colorful way to dress up a notebook! This will make writing even more special. This could make a great gift idea, too.

These are so easy and fun to make with kids! (And super cost effective!) As a teacher, I used this idea with my students to "publish" their favourite writing pieces. They got to really customize the books to match the theme of their stories. They had a blast doing it. This will be a tutorial that I will use over and over again.

The possibilities are endless with this idea.
