I decided to make handmade journals for my kids, not to buy my kids actual notebooks or journals this summer because I think they’re too big. Big overwhelms. Big is too many pages to fill. (Clearly my children haven’t inherited my journal hoarding / journal filling addiction!)
So, I made simple, small, handmade books for my kids to use for summer writing. And, if they fill up one journal, I can always make more!
Don’t you think the smaller books seem more manageable?
I thought so, too.

Steps to Making an Easy Handmade Journal
2. Cut your paper to size.
I made squares and used different colored paper.
3. Staple the edges.
4. Cover the staples with a piece of duct tape cut to size.
Have you see how to make easy paperclip books?
