An Alternative to a Laminated Traveler’s Notebook Cover

In number eight of my #craftseries2019, I showed how to make a  B6 Traveler’s Notebook (TN), dashboard, and folder using my laminator.  However, that isn’t the only method that you can make your own Traveler’s Notebook (some call it a Fauxdori after the popular Midori Traveler’s Notebook).

To find the dimensions and materials used for the B6 Traveler’s Notebook, check out my guest post on Itsareading.com: http://itsareadingthing.com/diy-b6-travelers-notebook-folder-and-dashboard-guest-post/

DIY Altered Mini Composition Notebook

In the first part of my YouTube video, I show you how I alter mini Composition Notebooks to match the TN cover using scrapbook paper, glue, and double sided tape.

Mini Composition Notebook covering:  Cut to 4.75 inches by 12 inches (I ended up cutting about an inch off to make my pocket a little smaller but I wouldn’t recommend that step until you’ve glued down the rest of the cover).

Once covered, you can make it as simple or as fancy as you’d like.  I ended up using my Happy Planner Simply Lovely Sticker Book to add some decorations.

DIY Mini Traveler’s Notebook Cover – No Laminator Needed

For the TN cover, cut your paper to 5 inches by 8 inches (this will give you a one inch spine).  You’ll want to score your TN at 3.5 and 4.5 in order to give you the area for the spine.
