I’m attending 2 conferences this week and I needed some last minute notebooks for my note taking so my stellar intern, Trisha Zemp, came up with this genius notebook idea from a brown paper bag that will take you 5 minutes. You probably already have everything you need to do it.
- brown bag
- white office paper
- thread (embroidery or book binding)
- awl (or safety pin)
- watercolors to decorate
Step 1: Take 5 pieces of white office paper.
Step 2: Rip it in half with a ruler.
Step 3: Fold those in half.
Step 4: Cut out a piece of brown paper bag to fit the exact shape of the folded paper.
To add some flourish, add some drawings or watercolor. I decided to add small lines of colors with watercolors.

To follow the stitch, from 1-2, then 2-3, these are both shown to be outdide the book, but I cannot imagine that. Wouldn’t one of those have to be inside? Thx!
