how to make your own quick & easy sketchbook!

How to make a diy sketchbook by susie ghahremani /
This is a super-easy project, customizable to any size, and you'll be left with a cute sketchbook with handy pockets filled with paper you love to draw or write on (unlike many sketchbooks on the market!) and something you can proudly say you made.

Edit: I now sell the "This Book Belongs To" sticker featured in this post, over here!

You will need:
  • approximately 10 sheets of drawing paper
  • A ruler, scissors, rotary cutter (or x-acto), sewing machine (or heavy duty sewing needle + thread)
  • One sheet of decorative paper (I recommend something a little bit heavier, like cardstock thickness)
  • Optional: rubber band or ribbon for super-flat closure
