About This Class


In this class you are going to learn how to create a quick and simple little Scribbler's  Notebook from materials that you most probably have lying around at home. At the end of this class you will have created a unique little notebook that has been bound or put together in a way that allows you to take pages out or put more pages in, whenever you need to.

Making these little versatile notebooks will also give you a chance to reuse and recycle materials that would normally end up in the landfill.

In the first part of this class, I am going to go through all the tools and materials needed to create a Scribbler's Notebook, followed by the step by step creation of the basic notebook. At the end, I'm going to show you how you can add some simple little details to the basic notebook, the spine band and a little label.

In the second part of the class, I'm going to take the basic  Scribbler's Notebook a step further and am going to show you how you can turn it into a personalised notebook, made with a certain theme in mind. You will get an idea on how to add beautiful images from magazines, add envelopes to create pockets in your notebook and give you ideas on other kinds of paper you can use in your notebook

I will also talk you through any creative challenges you might encounter on the way, And I will be doing this, by showcasing little stumbling blocks I came across making this second notebook during the filming of this class.

In the third part of the class, I'll be creating a new insert/notebook for my Travelers Notebook and you'll be able to see how I create my own personal notebooks that I use on a daily basis.

Once you know, how to make the basic Scribbler's Notebook, you might want to create one for a specific purpose or a certain size, you might want to start thinking of other options for your journal cover, of other kinds of paper you can use inside your journal or you might want to create a notebook as a present for a friend or family member.

In order to learn how to make a Scribbler's Notebook, all you need is to watch the first part of the class, but if you would like to take the idea further or get some ideas of how to personalise your notebook or see different variations, based on the basic design, you might like to carry on watching the remainder of this class.
