A5 Notebook Folio

Hey everyone 🙂

Today I have the most beautiful A5 notebook folio. I am so pleased with how it turned out and I think it looks very professional and pretty expensive too! It really didn’t cost much to make and it wasn’t difficult either. I have a step by step video tutorial for you to follow along and make one.

This would make a perfect Christmas gift for anyone. I think it would be perfect for Teachers gifts this year and the brilliant thing is you can decorate it any way you like! You could make quite a few of these for a couple of pounds.

I picked up some cheap A5 notebooks from my local Boyes store but I am sure you can get them from Amazon/Ebay etc. I am also happy to make other sizes if you want me too.

I will be using this one for my projects/notes etc for my YouTube tutorials 🙂 I will also be making a couple more for some crafty friends too.

One of the things i love about this folio is that you can refill the notebook! It just slips in and out the back. I also made a very generous pocket for the inside to. I may even make a pen holder on the next size folio tutorial.

I am going to have a look around and see if I can find any of those binder clips that I can attach to the front. If I find any I will let you all know.
