Hello, hello! I'm a huge fan of crafty projects that you can easily do with things you have at home anyway and don't have to buy lots of stuff when you spontaneously feel the desire to create something pretty. This tutorial is one of those things. :)
For this notebook DIY, you simply need to gather your masking tapes, pretty stationery, paper and some other supplies I bet that most of you have at home.
So here's exactly what you will need:
- Some sheets of white paper
- Colorful / patterned paper or cardboard (not too thick)
- Needle and yarn
- A (handmade) stamp and an ink pad
- A cut ruler (or at least normal scissors and a ruler, but this needs more time and accuracy)
Use your stamp and the ink pad to stamp the bottom of each page with a motif to make the pages more special and to add a personal touch to this project. Next, after the ink has dried, put all sheets of white paper (the amount depends on how many pages you want to have) onto each other. Then cut out the patterned paper (this is what I used the cut ruler for) so that it has the same size and use it as cover. Fold all sheets in the middle and use yarn and needle to sew them together in the middle. Make a bow to make it even prettier.
That's it! You can even add pretty labels or other details and embellishment and make matching gift tags or postcards with the same paper.
Those easy little notebooks are perfect as last-minute gift idea or as content for a goodie bag or tiny thank you present.
Have fun making your own ones in all different sizes and colors! :)
