So I’ve been doing a lot more crafting and sewing lately. I have a big project that I am working on right now that I can’t wait to share with you all. Maybe in a week or two…but for today, I stepped away from the big project to work on a smaller project. I needed a new notebook for my What Do I Know About My God? notebook. It has grown to the point that I can’t add any pages or turn the ones I have. Paper sizes and notebook sizes are different here. Since I started this notebook in the USA, all my paper is from there. I didn’t want to start the notebook again on Japanese paper to fit a Japanese notebook. I was at a loss as to what to do and then I remembered this post from Homespun Living. I didn’t have any old books that I was willing to take the cover from, so decided to make my own. I covered cardboard with a beautiful Japanese washi paper and then covered that with clear contact paper to protect it. I added 3 rings from the 100 yen shop (a.k.a. dollar store) and I have a new notebook that I love! If I need to expand it again, I can just buy bigger rings. What fun!
My photos aren’t that great. Maybe learning to take better blog pictures should be my next project. 🙂
