For some people it's easier to watch a video than following step by step photos.
So if you are one of them I hope that this video will help you !
Choose your desired model of decorative paper and cut a rectangle from it ( 4" X 5" 1/4 ).
Then take some unused cardboard ( I used the back side cover of a decorative paper pack ) and cut 2 rectangles ( 3" X 2" ) and another one ( 3" X 1/4 )
Using some solid colored paper cut 20 - 25 rectangles ( 2" 3/4 X 2" ) and another rectangle ( 4" 1/4 X 2" 3/4 )
Using PVA glue stick the cardboard rectangles on the design paper rectangle leaving an eight of an inch between them.
Cut the corners of the design paper.
Fold and stick the sides.
Stick the colored rectangle ( 4" 1/4 X 2" 3/4 ) on top of it.
With a bone folder score between the cardboard rectangles.
Fold it along the lines.
Align all the pages and hold them together using a paper clip.
On one of the long sides apply a generous layer of PVA glue.
Let it dry for about 5 minutes until the glue become transparent.
While the pages are drying, create a small ribbon loop and stick it on the inside of the cover.
After that, stick the pages.
Using some adhesive tape stick a strip of ribbon on the bottom of the notebook.
Now, add a decorative button.
Lastly, add some nice paper butterflies.
