How to make 100% handmade notebooks decorated with fabric
The last idea that we are sharing with you are these notebooks decorated with fabrics. Logically, you can buy the notebooks and decorate them, but what if we make the notebooks from scratch? Anna, from dyscostura, has created this wonderful Do it yourself tutorial in which she shows you how to make your own notebook decorated with fabric. In the video-tutorial, you will see how easy it is to make them.
You will also see that decorating notebooks with fabric is a great opportunity to recycle leftover fabric and cardboard scraps. Do you feel encouraged to make them?
