Marbled Sketchbooks

In July I attended an amazing 6-hour workshop to learn how to marble paper. I ended up with over twenty beautiful marbled papers which have been patiently waiting for me to do something with them. I decided to make some easy machine-sewn notebooks (my first set are here) and set to work to produce a bunch that I can include in my Christmas stockings in a few weeks time!

I bundled them into pairs and taped strips of tracing paper around them printed with 'CJ Made hand-marbled notebook'. Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best ones!


  1. They are lovely. What a good idea for presents!

  2. Well your friends and family are lucky aren't they? !
    These are such a lovely gift idea, who doesn't need a notebook? No-one!

    1. Thanks Julie. I really enjoyed making them too!

  3. Great idea and the marble effect is lovely.

  4. 6 hours of FUN Whoooo! they are absolutely beautiful. It is always amazing to marble paper and see the pattern revealed. Jo xx
