A while back I saw this tutorial for a checkbook cover at Attempting Creative. I absolutely loved it! Checkbooks are always so boring and this was a great and easy way to spice things up. I have to admit I did not follow her tutorial, but it is a good one if you want some step by steps. As always it was my day off and I feel like I have wasted the day if I don't have a new finished product by the end of it. So look it your scrap pile and whip up one of these gems for yourself, because that plastic-y vinyl cover has got to go!
I did cut the plastic dividers out of an old cover and sewed them on to separate my duplicate checks.
