Leather How is this for a masculine DIY notebook? The tutorial below categorized these notebooks as nature journals. I think they look perfect for sketching birds or jotting down your thoughts while camping. Check out the link for the how-to.



This reusable nature journal is a fantastic project for anyone who loves the rustic appeal of leather. Whether you're planning to capture quick sketches or preserve your hiking experiences, the durable material ensures your memories are well-kept. With leather's classic elegance, it transforms into a cherished keepsake over time. Making it yourself adds a personal touch that makes it even more special. Plus, the act of crafting is a relaxing way to engage with your creative side before you even start filling the pages. Embrace the adventure and craft your unique leather notebook.



Stamped Here is another DIY notebook idea that will be perfect for crafting for boys. If you've never made rubber stamps before, you will love the tutorial after the link. It will open up a dam of ideas for having fun with paper using cute stamps.



Woven Map

Woven Map How cool is this? Using a map to cover a plain notebook is crafty enough but Ruby went the extra mile. She cut the map into strips and devised a woven map cover for a notebook. Very creative.



Mini Fabric Cover

Mini Fabric Cover If you can remember from my previous DIY notebook post, I gave you a tutorial for making a fabric cover. This particular how-to is pretty similar but this time, you will be making a cover for a mini notebook. And you will be adding a Velcro fastener.



Multiple Stitch Line

Multiple Stitch Line From making a fabric cover, we move to a** DIY notebook** that involves stitching pages to beautiful leather. Unlike the previous leather tutorial I mentioned here, this particular project gives you a new binding method. It's perfect for those who like using notebooks with a good number of pages.



To-do Notepad

To-do Notepad Sure your mobile phone is handy for writing down notes but sometimes, an actual notebook makes making list more efficient. And if you're itching for a notebook that is all kinds of cute, this is what you need.




Matchbook Here is another DIY notepad tutorial for those who like small things for writing thoughts on. If you have lots of pretty card stock, this is a fun project to do.




Anthro-Inspired Take a plain notebook, cover with pretty paper, and add a tag to the front. Congratulations, you just made a journal that is Anthro-inspired.




Felt Instead of using paper or fabric, you can also use felt to customize a notebook. This is a fantastic idea because felt is always fun to touch. Bonus: felt comes in yummy colors.



Matchbook II

Matchbook II I know, I know, I've listed a matchbook DIY notebook idea here but the ones above are too cute not to include. Besides, they were made using a different method so I thought you'd appreciate the tutorial, too.




Ribbon Instead of embroidery floss, you can also use pretty ribbon to stitch a binding for your notebook. If you use a floral cover, like above, with a ribbon binding, you'd end up with one gorgeous journal.


Whew! Now we have 22 DIY notebook ideas. Hope you find something fun to make from this list of handmade notebooks! Happy crafting!
