I made this following a very good video tutorial. I actually found the tutorial though a previous thread here on craftster, but I can't find it anymore to quote it, sorry! This is the video tutorialhttp://photojojo.com/content/diy/make-your-own-photo-notebook-journal/ that inspired me anyway.

Its binded using Elmers glue. Its actually my first real homemade notebook. I wanted to do these for a while, but I was lacking paper to recycle for the project.

Then yesterday I found an old organizer and took out the empty pages. (I cut them to a smaller size in order to eliminate the margins that had the dates and times). The cover is a cut out from a vintage postcard found in a flea market.

I also used origami paper and brown wrapping paper (the latter was used for the binding too). The binding seems pretty good too.

And the back cover is from a light cardboard brochure.

If you have scrap paper, photos or postcards, glue and 30 minutes, you can make it too. One more notebook for my collection! With the best cover possible.

Thank you!  Smiley Easy/lazy projects like this one are just the best...I hope to constantly upgrade my bookbinding skills though. Just need to collect some more paper to recycle!

That is so cute.  I love the papers inside, especially the pink paper.  Every one is different & makes a great journaling notebook.
