So, I've been going through my old notebooks, cause they were taking up way to much space in my bookshelf. Some notes I wanted to keep, but there was a lot of paper left.

I used the back of a notebook to make the cover, and I've arranged the papers into stacks and just sewed them together with a few stitches. To attach the papers inside the cover I used a wood glue. It came out better than I expected: it's totally functional and I'm really happy about the result!
