Because I love the look of a handmade journal, but don’t want to bind one of my own, I bought this $1.09 marbled, hard covered composition notebook (the kind you can find in any office or school supply shop) and covered it with beautiful paper and punchy book binding tape. I offer detailed, step-by-step instructions for how to make these colorful beauties here, on my blog. It requires only a few supplies, most of which you probably already have on your craft supply shelf. Simple and satisfying! (I promise)
In addition to making the contents of your children’s backpacks feel more personalized, these also make nice gifts for giving to teachers and friends. I love using them for my household journals where I keep track of menus, moments of parenting brilliance, things my children have said (quotable moments) , etc.
