  • Lay the Ziploc Sandwich Bag at the top left inside of the notebook cover.
  • Mark with a pencil three points to put the scrapbook brads.
  • Use the sharp edge of a knife to make small holes at the pencil marks.
  • Insert the scrapbook brads, with the decorative side on the outside of the notebook.
  • Then gently push the brads through one side of the ziploc bag, above the seal.
