I made a sketch book that I can take along with me.  It has elastic to hold some pens and pencils and a pouch for an eraser or pencil sharpener.  You can add more paper when you use it up and take your artwork out and store it. This sketch book is made from corrugated cardboard, duct tape and other items you may have lying around.

Step 1: What you will need

  • Corrugated cardboard
  • Cardboard coffee sleeves
  • Duct tape
  • Screw Posts
  • Paint
  • Elastic
  • Small magnet
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Utility knife
  • Ruler
Great idea!!
Oh, this is so nice!!
I like this sketchbook very much! <br>I would have used a magnet instead of velcro for the front cover. <br>All of your instructables are great! <br>Isacco
Thank you! I magnet is a great idea, velcro doesn't work well after a while, I also find it collects a lot of lint, LOL.
How do you get your curves cut out sooooo nicely? Other than a sharp blade. Any special tips?
I have no idea, LOL.
Your sketch book is really cool. The design elements on the front are fun and colorful and I love the play of textures and depth. Very, very cool!
