New Digital Tutorial!

Hello Happy Crafters!

I’m excited to share with you my own take on the “Midori-style” Traveler’s Notebook. You all know I can’t just do something plain and basic. I want more function, more practicality, and definitely more fun. So, I’m officially announcing my Chunky Traveler’s Notebook!

In this digital tutorial you’ll learn how to make the notebook cover using Kraft-Tex and cardstock, which allows you to have a decorated cover (rather than simply plain leather or vinyl.) This style cover also allows you to add more to the inside cover as well!

The front and back covers have magnet closure fold-outs, with multiple pockets for storing notes, receipts, mail, plenty of room to store lots of goodies.

You’ll learn how to weave elastic cord into the spine to hold four booklets. In this project, you’ll create two plain-paper booklets by hand, and learn how to take pre- made, lined paper booklets into something a little more special and functional.

The great thing about the elastic-strap holders is you can easily slide these booklets in and out, which makes them easier to use and more functional, but also easy to replace once the booklets are used up. (I told you this was handy!)

In addition to the four booklets, you’ll also learn how to make a “slide through” folder with dedicated pockets on the front and back. You could add additional pockets to that slide through as well. (And to all the booklets, if you want to make your notebook super-super chunky!) The soft spine and the elastic band that holds the entire notebook closed makes it easy to stuff this notebook with as many goodies and notes as you’d like. You can also easily remove notebooks to create a more streamlined notebook.

There’s even a cute charm woven into the spine, and a barrel charm dangle added to the elastic closure band!

AND I include a full pattern paper cutting guide as well, so you can mat and decorate your Chunky Traveler’s Notebook with Tim Holtz’s Wallflower paper, exactly like mine, or use any paper collection you wish!

Here’s the video walk-through. (Have you subscribed to my YouTube Channel yet?)
