Prettier Notebooks

My sister found a stash of old composition notebooks at home, so I decided to make a project of them. I found a couple of similar projects online, though I can't track them down now. Basically, all I did was ...
1. Cut the paper to size for front and back (not covering the spine) and glue it down using Modge Podge (one site recommended using binder clip to hold paper together and away from glue)
2. Cut ridged ribbon to length (about 1.5-2 inches wide), and seal off ends with clear nail polish
3. Glue ribbon along spine trying to get it fairly even on front and back (helps to stand up notebook on long side and lay ribbon along spine and adhere to both sides at once)
