Covers for Exchangeable NoteBook

Binding project: Covers for exchangeable notebook.

I love this project, you use a notebook and when it is finished you just throw it away and use a new one using the same covers.
It is a way for using a standar notebook but giving it a special and personal touch.
Then, once the notebook is full, just change it for a new one =)
