Structure: Mock Midori Traveler's Notebook
Dimensions: 6 2/8 x 4 2/8
Video of my process.
After years of wanting the Midori Traveler's Notebook, I finally decided to make my own. The honest truth is that I just can't bring myself to pay that much for the real thing. Even when I have the money to do so, it just seems excessive. Maybe one day I'll be in a weakened state and buy it on impulse :-).
But for now, I'm happy with my version of it. It's not leather and it doesn't function exactly the way the original does, but I LOVE it. The leather-like cover with the satin inside makes me smile each time I open it.
If I were going to make another one, I'd likely make the cover a wrap around cover. I like when my books are enclosed. Something about that makes them feel safe and secure if I want to throw them into my bag/purse.
If you're watching the videos, I'm honored! If you're making the books, I'm intrigued, so please share here or on the Giving Hands Creative Community site.
