I bought a diary in Paperchase and decided I didn't like the cover after all. I was inspired by the Muji notebook and so I covered the ugly looking diary with parcel paper. I used some washi tape to ad some colour and finished it off by putting some adhesive plastic on top to protect it. I am happy with the result.
I made this colourful notebook a few months ago. I still haven't used it. Don't know what is for, other than to just be on the table.
I have been looking at lots of blogs on paper stuff and have been enjoying them a lot. I have a few ideas.
