And, yes, I made this binder for my coupons. I just started couponing... that's a whole different post!
Back to the tutorial...
Large piece of fabric cut to 19"x51"
Small piece of contrasting fabric for pocket approx. 11"x7" (optional)
Tacky glue (this kind dries clear, definitely a must)
Scrapbooking paper (12"x12")
Divider stickers (optional)
On the other side, pull the fabric tight over the rings, and mark where it meets up with the fabric on the other side. Trim it to size.
Once you have the binder covered, trim your excess fabric. First, remove the fabric on the inside. Use the binder as a guide, and cut along the edge. Then, create slits at the folds and trim that to 1/2". You should have what is pictured above. Now the fun part starts...
Put a line of glue along the binder edges and secure the inside fabric.
Make a small fold along the flap edge and glue down. Put more glue along that inside edge and fold down the corners like you're wrapping a gift. Put more glue along those inside edges and fold the whole thing up.
Do this on all the sides, and you're done.
To make dividers, take large 12"x12" scrapbooking paper and fold it in thirds. I added a file label, but you could also use paper or write directly on your dividers.
