I never really got on the journal-making bandwagon, nothing against it, just never delved into it. But when a dear friend gave me a journal with an adorable handmade jacket, and I noticed that the contens were a ruled journal, I knew something had to be done. I like lines, but not on journals, I find myself unable to write or draw in it, in short, ruled notebooks are quite useless in my hands.
So I decided to make my own hardcover journal (line-free). After looking up some instructionals online, and buying the necessary equipment (I love Daiso), this is my first attempt. Now I understand why people make their own journals, you get some weird kind of satisfaction when you hold the final product in your hands. I know there are some flaws clearly visible on the cover (I hate glue bubbles)… but I did it. And I’ll probably do a couple more cos I’ve got quite a collection of random paper scraps.
