If you are following the planner trend at all, you know that Midori (or "fauxdori") traveler's notebooks are very popular right now. Summer vacation is the perfect time to use them! I love the idea of slipping small notebooks in and out of a nice, cozy carrying case. Some traveler's notebooks are even the perfect size to hold your passport in as well. I'm planning on using one on our vacation this year and plan to slip in two notebooks-one to sketch in and one to glue in all the ephemera I pick-up on my travels. When I get home, I could slip the little notebooks out of the traveler's notebook and file them away. Maybe in a photo box with some printed photos from the trip? Wouldn't it be great to do this for every trip you take? Can you imagine the nicely organized boxes future generations could sift through someday?
Most traveler's notebooks are made from leather, but being a felt lover, I created mine from felt. I love how cute it is! You can get the full tutorial over the Kunin blog*. They really don't take long to make, so make one for your friend too.
