Hi there! Do you remember my mini journal? Well, I made some minor alterations, I hope you'll find them interesting! In the meantime, I also found out who had written of using a sewing machine to bind handmade, recycled notebooks...Madame Renard (so thank you!).
First, the black satin cord is shorter. It winds up only two times around the mini diary - meaning less waste of material.
I set a huge ceramic button on the front cover both to fasten the journal more safely and to make it more appealing. The cord rolls up around it, and gets stuck.
