INKLING: The Cinch–DIY Spiral Notebooks

The Cinch DIY Notebooks via homework - carolynshomework (2)
Guess what I’m going to be making for Christmas gifts? Lots and lots of pretty spiral bound notebooks. And it’s super easy now that I have a Cinch by We R Memory Keepers. The Cinch is basically like a comb binder but with nifty features that make it easy to create pretty notebooks.

Inkling: Inspiring Notebook Round Up

Blog Notebook Round Up CollageIt’s back to school time and that means it’s time for school supplies. I always loved getting brand new school supplies. I especially loved getting new notebooks, binders and composition books. All those blank pages ready for me to be neat and organized all year – or at least that what my intention was. Now a days, you can buy notebooks with pretty designs but it’s so much more fun to diy! Here’s a round up of some beautiful and inspiring notebooks.

Sew and Tell: fabric scrap journal



This little graph paper notebook was leftover from the back-to-school supplies. It turned out to be the wrong size. Not the right size for a chemistry class but at 5” x 8” it’s perfect for jotting down project ideas, sketches and notes.

I had bookmarked this project from Oh Hello Friend  – a cute Washi Tape notebook. And since my little orphan notebook needed some sprucing up, I decided to adapt this project and use fabric strips.

I first covered the notebook in plain fabric and fringed the edge. I glued the fabric onto the notebook and then trimmed it to size. I find this is much easier than trying to cut a piece of fabric to size and then gluing it on.

I used fabric strips from vintage pieces that I had. The above cross stitch fabric is the edge of a stained tablecloth.

This fabric is from a pillow case.

Another beautiful vintage tablecloth.

I left the first piece of fabric long to act as a bookmark and also added a strip of black and white ribbon for an additional bookmark.

My new idea book – ready to be filled with inspiration.
