One of the biggest charms for the Midori Traveler's Notebook is it provide so many ways/supplies for DIY, so, to follow the spirit, why not make inserts yourself if you are the traveler's notebook fan?
I have to say, this is my first time to make Midori Insert, and I don,t think it is difficult, to the contrary, it's turn out a great joy to do this.
First, prepare the supplies and tools: 1 piece of kraft paper to use as the cover, several pieces of A4 paper, ruler, cutter, and a stapler.
Both the kraft paper and inner pages are A4 size, you can just use the plain a4 paper or print it in lines/dots/grid as your like.
Here I printed it in lines, if you like this type of page, you can download this Ruled A4 Page.
When the paper and cover are ready, align them and fold in half with a bone folder or other similar tools you have.
At first, I planned to staple directly, but found not work, the notebook is thick and the mat below is tough.
Though it's failed, the good thing is it left hole marks on the kraft paper, I can easily use an awl to pierce the notebook for binding.
Now bound the notebook with staples.
It's almost done at this step, only the size is not the same.
The size of standard Midori Inserts is 21x11cm, and the size of folded A4 Paper is 21x14cm, so measure and cut it to 21x11cm.
Done! Not bad, right? Now make yours.
