Whether you opt to use it as an unusual notebook, a diary or for your own poems: simply bind your book yourself to create something really special. Or perhaps you need small souvenir? A home-made book is a memorable and precious personal gift.
Page after page of art. Simple to make using wallpaper. Anyone would be pleased to use this hand-made work of art day after day.
HANDY HINT: If you want to make things a little easier, you can also bind ready-made notebooks, writing pads, school books, calendars or journals with interesting paper, saving yourself the work of cutting and drilling the sheets.
1. First, create the wallpaper according to your mood and taste. Mix indigo blue with a little black and plenty of water to achieve this striped pattern. We recommend testing it on a sample piece of paper to see whether you like the colour. Then use a narrow brush to draw fine lines by hand. Allow the paper to dry.
2. Now it’s time to cut the paper and cardboard. Cleanly cut 3 cm from the short edge of the cardboard. Place one of the large pieces of cardboard on the wallpaper and cut two pieces with a 3 cm margin along each edge (you will end up with two pieces measuring approx. 24 x 21 cm). You will need 2 pieces of sugar paper, measuring 8 x 17 cm and 42 x 14 cm.
