You could use Magic Mesh.
It comes in great colors and different widths.
Already sticky, too. I thought this was a great idea when I first saw it.
Don't ask where or when, I have no clue.

Great Ideas! I have a question...what if the spine is a wire bound?
How do you decorate around the wires???

If the spiral notebook is for a girl, what about tying a tiny ribbon on, say, every other wire? Do you have the spiral punch to punch your paper so it will go inside the spirals?

I just got home from Target (went to buy the Bic markers mentioned on another thread) and they have composition notebooks for .50. However, I noticed there were two different types. The one that is in the school supply section has a nice heavy cover. The one that is in the office supply section has a much thinner (cheaper) cover. Yet both are only .50.

Can anyone tell me how the MM paint is different from regular acrylic paint?
Also, for those who have painted the spine, did you use a sealer? Thanks!

I cover my spine LOOSELY with Cardstock that I have corrugated / crimped, & then apply the red tape (sticky tape) so it will be on both the spine Cardstock & the paper out front & in the back. I put embossing powder on the tape (or fine glitter). Heat the embossing powder. This seals the cardstock to the spine area, even if the book is used a LOT!!
HTH!!

A couple of years ago I discovered colored electrical tape!!
Neat idea! I usually leave mine black, but I think I'll try to get some of this.

I used wide grosgrain ribbon attached with red line tape. It's held up fairly well. I like the electrical tape idea, though!
