This post is a bit different than other posts in that it does not provide my impression on any stationery product. It is more like a show-and-tell of a notebook I made recently.
By no means, I am an expert in this endeavor since this is the first notebook I made. At the end of this post, you will find several links from where I learn and gather ideas for this little project.
For the notebook paper, I use R by Rhodia Bloc, No. 12. Cover is part of a catalog, covered by handmade paper from India.
|Paper and cover all cut to size. I am using binder clips to keep everything together.|
|Instead of using an awl and hammer to make holes for sewing, I used a push pin, since there are only 5 sheets of paper.
Probably will not work if you have a dozen.
|Excuse my poor sewing job.|
|Binding from the backside|
|Secure the sewing with a piece of washi tape|
|Using a piece of wrapping paper to beautify the cover|
|Notebook profile view. Apologies for the bad trimming job!|
