One of the best purchases I’ve made lately is a brand new black Midori Traveler’s Notebook. And OMG I am in love! Now I am not a big planner girl. I do not own a Kikki K, Filofax or not even a regular ring bound planner. So when I stumbled across the Midori and learned more about it, I knew it was the one for me. The system works for me and my needs. I love the versatility of it. I love how I can have an insert for each thing that I need whether it be for lists, for scheduling (or planning), journaling, or any random thing.
There is a whole community on Facebook for Midori lovers. So many resources for DIYs of inserts and even DIY traveler’s notebook. I also love how Etsy has multiple sellers of copycat TNs with different colors and styles available.
I immediately ordered my Midori and some inserts and extra bands from Amazon. Hooray for Prime Shipping! I didn’t have to wait too long to receive it. Then I got some charms to attach to the elastic band to give it a personal touch.
I currently have four inserts in my Midori. All of them I made on my own. Here are some samples.
I love how these turned out. I used scrapbook paper for covers. Finally have a use for it other than sitting in my paper container. And then used embroidery floss to bind the notebooks. I’ve actually ordered a long reach stapler as well for easy binding. I can probably make a ton of these!
