- First, cut your paper the measurement of the outside cover (don’t include the spiral in the measurement), cut 2 pieces if you’re covering front and back.
- Put the piece of paper on top of the album, turn the album over and with a pen/pencil (you won’t see the marks once it’s done) mark where the holes are with dots.
- Measure the distance from the album’s left edge to its holes. Use this measurement to draw a vertical line down the back of your patterned paper.
- Punch small holes at the marks where the lines/dots intersect.
- Finally, make a horizontal cut from the hole to the edge of the paper. Do this to both front and back sides of album.
- To attach, you can use a Xyron machine and just run the paper through to make it adhesive-backed. You could also use adhesive spray, Mod Podge or whatever works for you. Check out Scrapbook.com's adhesive options.
- Cut the corners so they fold in nicely and fold the edges over and glue to the inside.
- Then take a piece of cardstock and measure just inside the covers and glue down to cover up the folds. And if you’re putting any kind of closure like ribbon, etc. be sure to put it under the paper before you glue the paper down.
