I hated the look of the binders that I had in my book crates and was going to buy some new ones until I came across some left over scrapbook paper in one of my drawers.
Why not just cover the spines and give them a whole new look?
All I needed was a ruler, pencil, scissors and a glue stick. I measured the spine and then added 2 inches to each side and trimmed the paper accordingly. Next, I ran a glue stick over the spine and centered the paper and then glued the edges down. Problem solved and money saved!
