Yesterday I went exploring a small little town near my house that was full of cute, local stores and found so much crafty inspiration! I came across some beautiful leather bound notebooks and wanted to try making my own.
Supplies: A piece of faux leather (found in any craft store), embroidery floss in any color, a needle and a button (it took me a while to decide which to use)
First cut strips of paper that will fit within the note book. Create four folded booklets of 10 strips each.
You're going to stitch each of the four booklets into place. Above is an example of how the back should look and below is the inside.
Repeat sewing in the booklets until all four are in there. The last step is to sew a button in place and cut a slit for the button to fit into.
Here are some pictures of the final results!
I love how this turned out. It's the perfect size to carry around in my bag to write down ideas! Let me know if you try this out.
