My 12-elastic TN in use

This notebook came from the lovely Diane of Strawberry Notebook on Etsy.

It is my first and only personal size (so far) and is nice thick firm leather with no pockets. I have several of Diane’s wood effect covers and they are so nice – they wear well and stand up to being tumbled around in my bag.

I use a personal size ring organiser so this is the perfect companion to it. The same size so I am used to it, plus not too big or heavy.

It has a whopping 12 elastics and I have it filled with neon notebooks from YellowPaperHouse on Etsy in blank, lined and small grid. I use 9 of the notebooks and keep three spare in the cover.

It now has a small ‘necklace’ of orange and purple flowers, three discs on the cover, and five bookmarks.

I have carried it around with me every day for months and months now and it looks as good as new.

I took these photographs during an online chat so the TN was not posed, hence things not being prettily arranged for the photo.

    • I had 12 elastics in this one and the cover was made to hold lots of inserts so this was easy – I book per elastic. Otherwise, if the book has fewer elastics, you put an elastic between the two books and then slip it under the main elastic.


  2. That looks seriously amazing… I never knew you could get so many notebooks in a TN!… I absolutely love the way it looks. That leather is going to age beautifully!…
