Notebook

I made this notebook as a birthday present for a friend.
It is filled with over 15 different types of paper - blank paper, lined paper, grid paper,
tracing paper, card stock, and sprinkled with pages from magazines and art gallery pamphlets.
I hand-cut and bound the pages together and made the cover out of cardboard and an old paper bag.
I am totally in love with the textures of all the different papers,
and I like the idea of using a notebook like this
where inspiration is allowed to flow from the paper itself.

  2. It is bound by sewing the pages together, which is something I learned how to do in high school. There are a lot of great tutorials on youtube if you want to learn how to do it yourself!
