Hey everyone! I am back with a new video and this is going to be a DIY or do-it-yourself traveller’s notebook. Let’s get started! All the materials and tools are listed in the description box below. First measure 22 x 15 cm on your material choice. For this project, I am using vinyl that I got from the thrift store. You can use materials such as actual or faux leather which a lot of Midori inspired notebooks are made of. After cutting the material, it’s time to add some double-sided adhesive to the wrong side of the material. This step is optional. You can use other forms of adhesive, but for me this was already available. Then add glue onto the entire surface. You can spread the glue using a brush or your fingertips, but I don’t find it necessary to do so. Carefully lay the material on top of the felt to stick them together. Smooth out any creases or lumps from the glue. Carefully cut the excess felt using scissors. Do this slowly to create a nice smooth cut. We’re almost done with the notebook cover The next step is to draw curves on the corners of the cover. This is once again optional, however the authentic Midori Traveller’s Notebook has round corners, which makes it look a little bit more professional. To make this step easier, you can use any small round object as a guide, such as a bottle cap or a coin. Carefully cut all corners. Flip the cover so the felt is facing you and draw a line in the middle, which is 11cm from the left and right edge. Then measure 1cm from both the top and bottom edge. This should serve as a guide for the holes, which are 0.5cm on both sides of that dot we created earlier. Mark the centre of the cover as well, which is 7.5cm from the top and bottom edge. Use an awl or anything sharp to poke holes through the cover. Take the elastic cord, which I got from eBay, and roughly measure the spine of the cover twice. Cut two pieces. With one cord, insert it through the centre hole. This will act as the closure for the notebook cover. Tie a knot on the inside to secure it in place. Using the second cord, insert it through the four holes we made earlier. Start from the top left hole, then through the top right, moving down to the bottom right, then onto the bottom left. Pull the cord so the cover bends slightly and tie a knot. Take a pocket sized notebook and insert these into the elastic cords like so. When adding more notebooks, use the elastic cord to make another elastic band. Insert it inside the notebook, then take a pocket folder or another notebook and insert it though the cord on the spine of the notebook, like so. Insert it under the pink notebook and you’re done! The Midori Traveler’s Notebook is used by a lot of people in the planner community, which inspired this project. I made this out of materials I already had. In the description box is the list of the materials and tools I used, as well as where I got them from. If you decide to make this, you can use it as a planner, a sketchbook, a journal or just for note taking.
