Fuzzy Wuzzy Notebook

Get ready for school by customizing your own notebook. Make it FUZZY! It’s a simple and easy thing to do, but needs help from a parent.

What You Need
Notebook with a board or sturdy cover
Colorful pipe cleaners
Hot blue
Duct tape in a cool color or pattern

What You Do

  1. With your hot glue gun on low heat, add one strip down the length (or width) of the notebook as straight as you can.
  2. Quickly place a colorful pipe cleaner on the glue strip. If you are going vertically, allow the pipe cleaner to hang off both ends of the notebook. If you’re going horizontally, allow only the end of the pipe cleaner that’s at the notebook’s opening to hang over.
  3. Repeat the first two steps until the cover is full of fuzzy pipe cleaners. Kids, it’s your notebook. So, if Mom or Dad won’t let you handle the hot glue gun just yet, then you need to make the color choices and the pattern to set.
  4. After the cover is full, bend the edges over the cover and then put a piece of colorful duct tape over the edges. This will help hold them on as well as cover the points.
