Hello! I made two little notebooks with left over scrapbooking paper. It was my first try at making notebooks. What I did was make 5 small holes through the pages and cover pages and 'sew' it all together. I think they look kind of cute Smiley I used a needle to make the holes and that was horribly difficult, if anyone knows a simpler way?

 Thank you so much Smiley

oh these are very pretty! i like them and how simple they are.

are the covers also paper? they look a bit thicker, but still all bendy.

and there's a tool for book-making called an 'awl' (or as i call it, the sharp stabby thing) that is meant for making the holes to sew through. they're relatively cheap and you can get one at any craft store that sells book making supplies Smiley

I just used scrapbooking paper, which is much stiffer than normal paper. And i'll definately have to look for an awl next time I go to my craft supply store. Thank you for the comments Smiley

I am in awe of the cuteness of the paper!  Here is an idea next time you could use a tiny paper hole punch for the holes.  I actually have one the would work.  I prob bought mine at pat cantan's in the scrapbooking department.  hmmm and I have a huge amount of scrapbooking paper.  Goodness, I do love craftster!

Good Job!

I use a thumb tack or pushpin to poke my holes when I'm book binding.

I have decided that the hokey pokey is what it's all about.
