A5, Regular size, and Mini kraft folders from Monique Vanmeulebrouk

These arrived today. Luckily they all fitted in a regular envelope so I did not have to go to the post office to collect them.

You can make these yourself but as I am hamfisted so I prefer to buy these from my favourite Etsy sellers. If you use a traveler’s notebook like I do, you always end up with bits of paper that you need to put somewhere and these are perfect.

I ordered brown Kraft folders to go with the A5 cover I am using from Glenda Slann. Monique also makes folders with leather pen loops on them and I love those as well.  The dark brown exactly matches the dark brown lining of the cover and the folders were held together for travel with a perfectly contrasting pale pink band. Thank you Monique for the lovely work, and for the little charm!



While I was there I happened to stumble upon these two beauties. Look at that purple!  And the painted one is on sale!

  1. For my A5 I use Rhodia side stapled. I wish I could find some thin Japanese paper, but Rhodia is nice for fountain pens or rollerball, just thicker than the Japanese paper.

  2. I love everything Monique makes. I haven’t tried the inserts but I am more and more tempted to get the paper inserts with the leather pen loops. You are the second person I see who mentions it so it must be a sign that I need to get it!

    1. They are really nice! I have them in several sizes and they are beautifully made! You can also just buy the loops and attach them yourself.
