diy mini notebooks

Today I have a new diy for you. I made these little paper notebooks a few years back and I thought I should re make the tutorial. It's very easy! I've also added some few printable covers for you to make your own.

You can download the printable covers here, or you can find old wrapping paper or make your own cover designs for your notebooks.

supplies needed
paper (for inside) // printable covers (here) // scissors // needle + embroidery thread // washi tape

step 1 /
Cut the paper you want for the inside of your notebook. Measure them against your covers and make them slightly smaller so they fit nicely inside. Choose how many pieces you want, but don't use too many as you do need to sew them.

step 2 /
Fold your papers in half so that you have a centre spine for your notebook. Use your embroidery/craft thread to sew a spine down the middle of your book and then knot and tie off.

step 3 /
Choose a coordinating washi tape for the spine of your notebook and place over the sewing to hide it. You can choose to do this step or not as you might prefer the exposed sewing

have a lovely week
