Midori Inspired Traveler's Notebook: DIY

Midori Traveler's notebook is popular among planner and leather craft addicts (pictures are from Pinterest). Some people don't just use it for it's primary purpose which is to document one's travel experience, they use it as a planner too!

Aside from the simplicity of the notebook itself, the Midori system is also very useful, basic but useful - very Japanese. You can check the site on how the system works.

Upon buying, you'll get the leather cover, 3 notebooks and 2 elastics. This retails for around 1700php. For a leather product, this is already ok. However, I just can't spend on another notebook. I have several unused notebooks at home. So, I figured I just need to create one for myself. Just to beat the bug and not be forced to buy one.

Below is how I made my own Midori inspired traveler's notebook a.k.a as Fauxdori:

colored paper
printed craft paper

First off, cut your leather

Add holes on the side for the main elastic

Now make your own notebook inserts using colored papers as the main pad and printed craft paper as notebook cover

Cut the elastics (got these from National bookstore)

Compile the notebooks in the leather cover following the midori system or you can design your own system! 

Usually people who own this notebook, put a notebook charm just to personalize it more - so I did too 

There you go, my very own fauxdori! Can't wait to use this for my future travels!

Great tutorial, I do have two questions:
1. Where did you purchase a MTN for 1700php and
2. Where did you get that leather for your project
