DIY: Anthropologie Inspired Custom Notebooks

Written by , Posted in DIY

I’m absolutely obsessed with having a cute notebook with me at all times. You never know when a million dollar idea will come to you, and you have to be prepared! (I’m still waiting for my million dollar idea) So I’ve been doing a lot of online shopping for new moleskins and cute notebooks, and I’ve fallen in love with tons of them, but I’m usually not so in love with their price tags. Anthropologie had particularly cute notebooks that were adorned with an even cuter little gift tag to write your name, and I decided to replicate the gift tag notebook and also a second method of covering and creating a custom notebook!
