Rockin' Notebook Cover

Rock N Romance notebook cover
Need a last-minute handmade gift idea? I've got my notebook cover tutorial over on the Art Gallery blog today!

I'm using Art Gallery's fab Rock 'N Romance fabric line to make this girly-ish cover. It looks like there's a ribbon laced through the cover, doesn't it? Nope, it's all pieced, and super easy. Click on over to see how to make it.
