On this beautiful afternoon, we all gathered in the shop to learn how to make original notebooks. Our teacher this day was Queen, who volunteers from time to time for Zó; she make the most remarkable notebook by hand.
All we needed was paper, fabric, glue, accessories, and lots of creativity!
We started off by gluing the fabric on the paper to create the cover of your notebook (choose your fabric wisely !)
Then put the cover and the sheets of paper together, and it was all done !
You can add up a bit of originality with some accessories : a thin bamboo stick hand-stitched on the cover, a cute little button and a bit of string to close the notebook, etc. it’s up to you to make your notebook so unique !
We were all very proud of our creations, and also impressed by how easy it was to make them ! These unique notebooks are still available in the shop (on the railway track : 10 Điện Biên Phủ, Hàng Bông, Ba Đình, Hà Nội), and thanks to the Dó paper we used to make them, your stories will be set on paper for hundreds of years … How incredible !
