Hi!
Finally I made my first notebooks! I LOVE papers but I haven`t work with them before (well, just wraping gifts, one of my passions!)


They are made with cardboard, rice paper, red cotton strip, embroidery thread, rubber band, sheets of paper and white glue.



In the blue one I didn`t glue the cotton strip to the cover, so it can be used to fold small papers.


But in the green one I glued it because I was afraid that paper could damage the embroidery.

Now I have to wait to see if the technique I used to glue the sheets of paper is strong enough. If it works I`ll make a tutorial  Wink
There are more pictures and explanations in my blog, I didn`t want to make here a too long post!

Hope you like it!

These are really beautiful notebooks!  I would love to know how you did them.  They would make great stocking stuffers for adults!
