A little hybrid goodie

I've been wanting to try some more hybrid stuff so here's a little composition notebook I made with stuff by Britt's {Leave the World Behind} kit available here. I also used Dirty Feet Designs {Wrinkled Black Alpha} available here and the kraft paper came from the {Grateful 4U} CT appreciation kit.

Here's the back:
This was so super EASY! I just printed out the covers onto satin photo paper right here at home. I made the templates slightly larger than the actual book so that in case my next notebook is different in size it would still fit, plus I wanted to be able to trim off the edges to get a nice clean finish. After letting the pages dry for a bit I ran them through my Xyron machine and stuck them onto my book. I trimmed off the edges and found some coordinating ribbon to attach to the spine and cover the inside edge. Eventually I will glue a piece of cardstock to the insides of the covers to hide all the printing there and cover the ends of the ribbons. Done!

And I made templates so that when I make another one, it'll go lickety split! Plus, I like to share so you can download the templates for both the templates here. Enjoy! Please share what you did with the template by posting a link in the comments here. I'd love to see it!!!

Since the templates are larger than the actual book make sure you leave about .25 inches all around for cut off. Don't put anything important there!!!
