I have recently been looking into making my own stationary and have created a some notebooks from scratch. The end results are really satisfying and it is really easy to do. I shall definitely be making more of these – possible gift solutions for the future.
I cut some A4 plain paper into quarters and bound with glue. The cover was done using various floral stamps and Memento inks. I glued this onto a cereal packet to give the notebook strength then used Washi tape to seal the edges. Once this was done it was easy to glue the paper stack into it.
This notebook was my first attempt. I have made a couple since using patterned papers and stamped inside to personalise each one. I will put some more photos up when I have some more time.
