Buttoned notebooks

17 Set


Hello everybody!

Today I’m going to show you how to make yourself some little notebooks, using just what you have at home. Well, I first saw something very similar on Pinterest, and I had to try asap 🙂

While thinking about how to personalize my booklets, I encountered a tutorial exchange with Lots of Buttons, an enormous online store that sells hundreds of beautiful buttons. I used some of the biggest and most colorful ones to decorate (and close) my notebooks.

My recycled notebooks are kinda girly, and they are machine sewn: obviously you could make then anyhow you like them, and even children can make some, provided some help from adults!

I made several differnt notebooks: one has a watercolor on the cover: it was made by a small child from where I work (luckily I hardly throw away their paintings or drawings). Another notebook is painted with chalkboard paint ( I loooove it). All of them have a hardcover made of salvaged cardboard: cereal, pasta, yoghurt, rice boxes. Plus colorful and funny buttons, some from Lots of Buttons (thank you again guys!)

Come fare? Leggi il tutorial!

If I had a million hours...

...there are - literally - lists and lists of things I'd do. But life is short and time is limited. This is how I choose to spend the hours I've been given - and some funny stories along the way.
