I wanted to cover my new To-Do Book in a creative way. I love woven ribbon cushion covers, and thought I would try something similar with some scrap cardboard strips I had.I took the longer strips and glued them to the inside cover of the book. Then I wove shorter black strips through. I decorated 2 of the strips with some ribbon. Once I had woven my way around the book, I secured the remaining loose ends on the inside back cover. I dotted glue on the shorter strips, to stop them from slipping out. I am happy with the outcome. Hopefully it will be easy to find the book in amongst my other stuff, with it's allround checkerboard look.
