DIY SKETCHBOOKS - No Stitching & No Stapler
How to Create a Sketchbook
A sketchbook is a personal portfolio in picture form. It captures your moods, thought processes, and artistic progress over time. It is very easy to create and maintain your very own sketchbook. Read this article to find out how.
Take two pieces of cardstock and punch 5-7 holes down the left side of each one.
Take the computer paper, match it up with the cardstock, and punch holes in the same spots.
Insert the computer paper in between the two pieces of cardstock.
Weave the twine through the holes.To do this, take the end of the string and carefully thread it through the head of the needle. Insert the needle all the way through the first hole of the paper and cardstock. Wrap the thread around to the left, and insert the needle into the next hole down. Repeat until you reach the bottom of the book. If you still have thread left on your needle, then turn around and continue sewing the book the other way until you run out of thread. If this wasn't clear enough, check out an article on sewing.
Take the strip of fabric and the superglue.Make sure the strip of fabric is wide enough to wrap around the sides of the book, too. Be very careful when you use superglue; it is super sticky. Squeeze superglue around the sides of the fabric. Very carefully wrap it vertically on the spine, over top of the stitches. Press it down. Let it dry before you do anything else, you don't want to inadvertently glue your fingers together.
Now, here's the fun part.Decorate the cover of the book. Make it unique and personal; it's your sketchbook. Consider making a collage of magazine clippings, or photos, or whatever you want. Paint the front of it. Write your name in bubble letters. Do whatever.
Now it's time to fill your sketchbook.Take it with you whenever you can, and in your free time, sit down by an object that interests you, and draw it to your best ability. If you mess up, don't erase it or rip out the page. Keep it so that the next time you draw the same thing, you can look back on your mistakes and prevent yourself from repeating them. If you run out of pages, tape some more pages in on top of others. Make a sketch on a big piece of paper, then fold it up and tape it inside the cover. It is literally impossible to run out of space in your sketchbook, because it is expandable. Well, I can't really tell you what to do anymore, because it is your sketchbook and it's none of my business. Enjoy.
