There's nothing quite as wonderful as a beautiful notebook!

From Lova: "There are very few things that I love as much as beautiful notebooks. I have a big box of them in my room at home, and each one has a different purpose. Some I write stories in, some are for lists, ideas, or drawings. It's one of those things I feel one can never have too many of. Something I have never done before though, is binding my own notebook, where I got to choose the size, the ribbons and the patten of the cover myself! I found a kit fromPaper Source which had great, easy to follow instructions. I would say that this is a great gift for a creative friend, especially if you know their favorite color, but I think I will keep this one for myself!"

These are the supplies I used:

Inside Paper

Book Cloth

Decorative Paper


1.I had never done this before so I just followed the instructions that came with the kits, but I think I might be able to make my own next time! 2.I took some scraps of the pretty decorative paper and glued it to unsharpened pencils. After they dried I sharpened them and had great tools to write in my notebook with! 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25.
