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.

    Lovely blogpost by Janet from This Bugs Life. Thank you for the kind words Janet!


  3. 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!
