Panda Traveler's Notebook

Hello DeNami Friends!

Today, I've got a DIY traveler's notebook for you!  If you follow my blog or instagram, you'll know that I have been obsessed with traveler's notebooks, especially making my own! Today I will show you how to make your own, and embellish them using DeNami design stamps!

You may or may not know that my family & I are joyfully expecting baby #3!  I wanted a place to document my pregnancy.  I used to have a pregnancy journal that I used for both of my previous pregnancies, but I can't seem to find it, so I decided to make my own "baby bear/bump" traveler's notebook.  

I really hope you enjoy my project, and I hope I inspired you to DIY your own traveler's notebook!

To make the traveler's notebook:
  1. I cut down a piece of craft cardstock to 9 x 8 inches, then scored down the middle, so my traveler's notebook would measure 4 1/2 x 8 inches.
  2. I cut down some graph paper (torn out of a spiral notebook) down to 9 x 8 inches, then scored down the middle.
  3. I placed the paper inside the cardstock, then sewed down the middle/fold using my sewing machine.  (Note: if you don't have a sewing machine, you can hand stitch or staple your project together.)  You may need to trim down the sides of the graph paper due to the folding and bulk.
  4. I took a corner chomper tool, and rounded the right edges of my notebook.
To embellish my traveler's notebook:
  1. I die cut a heart from a piece of white cardstock.
  2. I stamped the panda image repeatedly onto the heart.
  3. I attached the panda heart to the front of my notebook using low profile foam tape.
  4. I also stamped the various panda images to the bottom right corner of some of the graph pages in my notebook.  (I lightly colored some of the images as well.)
  5. To hold my notebook closed, I got a piece of pink & white twine, and tied it in a pretty bow.
