It’s been a while, and I had a desire to make another book, so I did. This took me an afternoon, plus drying time. Not too bad!
I wanted a larger notebook which I could use as a bullet journal – more of the decorative scrapbook kind. I’ve been using my previous notebook in that way, and there were a few things I’d learned from regular use:
- Gluing in nice paper, using washi tape, sticking in things like tickets, all made the book fatter and it no longer sits closed.
- I worried a lot about the endpaper only covering the inner cover. It looks ugly, but it doesn’t really affect the book’s structure that much.
- Art paper is wasted on notebook pages, unless it’s specifically going to be used for art.
- It’s a bit small.
- I also wanted a bit more of a squarish shape.
I addressed all of these points with my new book. Take a look!
