Mike of The Crafty Gentleman shares how to make a leather bound journal complete with a decorative inner lining that can be personalized for your family and friends. Mike chose to line his journal with a map of the British Isles, but the beauty of DIY is you can use any decorative paper that suits your fancy! Mike says, “What is more timeless and classic than a leather-bound journal?! Perfect for business, as a gift or even just as a scribble pad to keep at home, they’re a really useful way to organise your life in true style! Unfortunately, they can be pretty pricey.” Thankfully, Mike shows you how to make your own for less than $10!
Mike’s DIY leather bound journal is similar to the Amalfi Blue Leather Journal from Beautiful Notebooks.
