Teri Muncey, who runs 'The Lovely Drawer,' offers a luxury notebook design that can easily be replicated at home.
While the notebooks appear to be made of stone and copper, those materials were only the inspiration for these luxury notebooks. The designer created the effect by first using marble-like adhesive vinyl or contact paper and sticking it onto the front page of a regular notebook. Then, the designer simply paints a copper color onto a piece of adhesive paper and attaches it to the spine of the notebook -- making it appear as though it has been bound with copper. The artist completes the book by twisting copper paperclips into a triangular shape so they can function as bookmarks.
This elegant DIY project is an excellent way of creating beautiful stationary that is also affordable.
