When I first saw this tutorial, I totally wanted to do it, but totally thought I couldn't do it. In the end, the excitement won out over the fear, and I ended up being very glad I tried. Searching the thrift store for the perfect old book and making my own paper notebooks, trying something challenging, it was all very exciting. And on top of that, it was really fun to give something special to a friend!
Here's the tutorial and pictures of my finished notebook.
Hoping my excitement will encourage you to try something new, too. Happy adventures in glue and paper, friends!
