DIY, customize a moleskine

DIY customized moleskine

I was recently asked by Brides.com to come up with a DIY project for Valentine’s Day. After a bit of thinking, I decided to customize an off-the-shelf moleskine sketchbook. (I know, am a bit crazy for the moleskines!)

I made my DIY moleskine for Steven (he loved it!) and I think it makes a great handmade gift for any occasion. The basic concept is that you cut out some of the original pages and glue in your photos instead. I also added a “Top 10 Reasons I Think You’re Really Great” list to accompany the photos. Oh, and I wrote a secret in it, too.

Here is the project feature on Brides.com with the detailed instructions. Please let me know if you have any questions. And if you make one please send me a photo, I’d love to see how yours turns out!!

Here are some more photos of mine.
