Handmade notebooks!

Hello Lawnscapers!!

Happy Saturday!! 
It's Lenny from the FIT here with you today!
Last month, I made some Post-it note holders and now I decided to make some 
matching notebooks. 
Not really matchy matchy, because for the Post-it note holders, I used some
Lawnfawndamental notecards ... but there aren't any coordinating patterned papers.
The notebooks look the same though, but they are bigger than the Post-it note holders.

Here are some photos . . .

For a book list ... ?

Small travel journal ... 

I used some 12X12 patterned papers and cut them to this size: 
15.2 cm x 30.5 cm  (in inches: 5.9 x 12) 
I scored at 14 cm (5.5 inch) and then at 28 cm (11 inch).
After you fold the notebook, it's easier when you cut a strip from the front cover,
that way the little flap on the right side will fold over better. 
I used some computer paper for the inside; size: 14 cm x 24 cm (5.5 inch x 9.4)

Thanks for poppin' by today!! 
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!! 

And ... there's still some time left to play along with our current challenge: CAS!!



  1. Like the notebooks. Not sure if I understand what you meant by cutting a strip from front cover. Would like to see the inside also.

    1. I believe she means that you should cut off a sliver of the cardstock on the right side that will be under that flap with the hole. It will close flatter that way.

  2. Oh my gosh what a FANTASTIC idea, Len! These are so cute, fun, and practical! The colors on the camper sre SO cute, and your coloring is awesome, as always! LOVE IT!!!

  3. These notebooks are adorable! Love the great colors and images you used!
