24 Of The Best Notebook Ideas
In january of 2012 I created a post that I had intented help me attempt to deal with the amount of blank notebooks I own; I am a stationery junky. We got up to number 17 on the list which you can see here. I did secondary posts with number 18;A DIY Planner, inspired by LikeGiselle and number 19; An envelope/pocket memory keeping notebook, and at the same time I was furiously writing little notes for more ideas to fill notebooks (I own A LOT of blank notebooks). Today I shall be sharing the updated list with some images to share said ideas in practice… I will then be returning, extracting ideas and showing you the newest ‘soon to be filled up’ notebooks!
This image is a little DIY notebook I made using scrapbook paper and bakers twine to bind it, that is one of my favourite, super simple crafts to make but I had to stop myself from making said notebooks as they were beginning to pile up and lay untouched!
