I love using found and recycled materials to create small blank notebooks! I always find paint chips inspiring, and during my last visit to the hardware store I picked up a few new colorful paintchips to try as notebook covers. I cut paper to size for the interior sheets, punched small holes in the spine with a needle, and sewed these cheery striped blank journals together with pink/silver glitter thread. These notebooks fit easily in your pocket or purse and open flat for easy writing.
Read more about these simple notebooks (or purchase one — just $3.50 for the striped paintchip journal) at my Etsy shop. And, check out some of my other tiny/recycled notebooks (shown below: vintage washi paper journal, vintage sports pocket journal, pantone pocket notebook, striped paintchip journal) I’ve been making:
