I make notebooks out of magazine and other paper. I can do either a traditional binding or thread binding. Some notebooks are laminated and some are sealed with epoxy while others still have a plastic slip cover.
These notebook covers are easily cleaned with a damp cloth.
A notebook can take anywhere from one to four hours to make.
I made these pieces for the same reason I make all of my crafts: I love to work with paper, and I hate to see anything go to waste, especially if I know it has real potential to be beautiful.
