Handmade Mini Notebooks

Tiny notebooks with dust jackets

I’ve been trying out some different types of bookbinding over the past few months. These tiny notebooks are among the simplest to make but I like them a lot. They are based on a maze book, aka meander book, which is cut and folded from a single sheet of paper. I added a cover from cardstock and little dust jackets for decoration.

I used Fence Poste’s maze book tutorial to make my books, but glued the pages together to make them more manageable as notebooks. There’s a more advanced tutorial for a meander book with pockets that looks like fun if you figure out the basics first.

Oooo. I’m a sucker for little notebooks, especially hand made ones. I’m too lazy these days for crafting and so settled for a new Moleskine journal for the New Year.
