I’m preparing for when I start using my Websters Pages traveler’s notebook. Yesterday, I just wanted to see if I could do it and made a DIY insert! I love how it came out …
Then I decided to spend all day making more! I made 10!
I love them!! So pretty and I can make whatever cover I want!
Here are some quick instructions:
– 24# paper by Epson Bright (inside)
-scrapbook paper (cover)
So I cut the paper down to size, using the original insert as a guide. The height was 8 1/4″ and the width was 8 3/4″.
I then cut my scrapbook paper down to size. I folded them all in half (in sections) and used the bone tool to make a good crease.
Then I would clip them together, on all four corners. This keeps it secure when sewing.
Then I got an old book and set my insert in the middle crease. This is how I used my craft pick to punch the holes.
I didn’t measure any of the holes, just kind of went with what I felt. Then came the sewing. I would start on the inside then tie a knot.
Then go down the next notch on the back and bring the needle back through. I would the go back through the previous hole, above the one I just came through. Do this each time.
Then you tie knot or two at the end, on the inside of the book. Here is what it looks like finished …
Then I would take the bone tool and go over the seem a couple times.
After this, I took my exacting knife and cut the white pages that were sticking out, dow to size. Then just insert into you TN!
