A colleague of mine introduced me to these little notebooks that I’ve been love using. They are not so precious to use and a great size to have anywhere. I bought a package of 4 for $1 at Dollarama and covered them with some decorative Japanese Paper.
What you will need:
- Notebooks (these were from the dollar store, Dollarama)
- Japanese paper or decorative paper
- Glue stick or white glue
How to: Cut a piece of paper a little larger in length so that you can wrap the edges around the cover. The notebook will have a nicer feel when you are opening it. I just used a glue stick but a stronger glue is highly recommended. It doesn’t take long to make, I covered all the little books while talking on the phone!
Here are other note books I’ve covered over the years. Some leather cover ones also, (Here’s some how-to instructions from a previous post)
Recently, a friend of mine was in Italy and gave me this cute notebook from Fabriano. It is a little taller in height, has a pocket in the back and the paper is stitched together. I haven’t decided what kind of writings or sketches to put in it. Does anyone else have hesitation when starting a new notebook? Do you suffer from sketchbook anxiety?
