Making little notebooks with hang tags is a lot of fun and super easy!

Step 1: What You'll Need

Picture of What You'll Need

What you'll need:
Hang tags, brads, hole punch (I used one with a smaller hole than the standard hole punch--you can also use a tapestry needle to punch a hole big enough for the brad), bone folder and string.
Of course, you'll need some paper and a scissor to cut the paper.
You'll need your sewing machine too if you plan on sewing down the middle.
You can also sew the paper to the tag by hand.

Step 2:

Did you find any trouble with your machine whilst sewing in the paper? (I love this project dearly!)

I used a needle for leather. I suppose I should edit that in! :)

Have fun!
