Hardback Handmade Travellers Notebook With Inserts (Part 1)

positivelypapercraft travellers notebook


Hi everyone,
Welcome to my Blog!! I am so excited about today's project!! I have been working on it for a couple of days now & i am thrilled at the end result. As you can probably tell from the picture, i have made a small & large Travellers notebook. If you follow me you may no that i have done a few travellers notebooks in the past, however i have never done any made from chipboard. I just love them and i also love making them! I think this is my new addiction.

I even made all 4 notebooks in the larger TN. They turned out perfect & i think they look so professional. Making them yourself means that you can add in anything you like! This turned out to be a long tutorial so i decided to split it into 2 parts. Part 1 is the cover and binding etc & part 2 is the notebooks & pockets.  As this is part 1 i will list all the measurements for the cover etc & tomorrow when part 2 comes out, i will list all measurements for the notebooks & pockets etc.

In part 2 i show you a few different options on how you can make your notebooks so i hope you find it helpful. I will never buy another notebook as i am so pleased with the ones i made. The small TN is just so adorable and i had some notebooks lying around that i bought for the last TN i made. It made sense to just use them up. I will also list the measurements in tomorrows post in case you would like to make the smaller version. Its made the same way just smaller.

  4. Brilliant Ann! Just brilliant! I've made something similar but never thought to combine 2 cereal boxes to make the cover. I usually use 1. This will definitely aid in my promise to send more handmade gifts this year. Hugs from Orlando, FL!
