Today I’m sharing a quick and easy diy notebook or journal that would make a great stocking stuffer. I used the following materials and tools, but feel free to change up the size of the book and make do with the tools you have.
- Notebook cover: 7″ x 10.5″ (18cm x 27cm) piece of handmade paper (I used White Larkspur from December Paper Club)
- Notebook pages (signature): 6-10 pieces of 7″ x 10″ (18cm x 25.5cm) sketchbook paper, folded in half. Click here for tips on creating signatures
- Waxed linen thread
- 1 yard of ribbon
- Piece of scrap paper for punching template, 7″ x 2″ (18cm x 5cm)
- Bone folder
- Punching cradle or thick magazine
- Sharp knife
