EASY Travellers Notebook Tutorial Part 1

Easy travellers notebook tutorial


Hi everyone,
First i just want to wish you all a very happy new year. I hope you all have a healthy, happy and crafty new year.
I want to kick the new year off with a Travellers Notebook tutorial. Its really easy to make and the video is a bit long. Thats only because i wanted to explain it all step by step.  I also make some storage wallets and envelopes for it.

I have put the links in my you tube video description for the notebooks that i came across on Amazon. They are only about £4.50 for a pack of 10 and you can get them with narrow lines, wide lines, blank and a grid layout. I made my blank note books using copier paper. It is very simple to do but you will need a long arm stapler if you want to do it this way.

I made my Travellers note book the same size as the one that Gemma sent me. The only problem is that the notebooks that Gemma used were a  bit larger than mine. It just means that my cover is a little large for the notebooks. As i said in the video tutorial, i will also put measurements for a smaller cover which fits the notebooks better. Please bare in mind that if you make the cover the smaller size, the envelope on the back cover will be to big and also the pockets on the front inside cover. You would have to make them smaller.
