Have you ever wanted to make a hardbound watercolor sketchbook but thought it would be too difficult or take too much time?
In my YouTube video I show you how to make a watercolor sketchbook from a single sheet of Strathmore 400 Series, 140 lb. watercolor paper. There is no sewing, stapling or taping necessary because the sketchbook is made from a single sheet of 22" x 30" watercolor paper. It's folded, cut and re-folded in what I call an "Accordion/Flip" style and you can complete the text block in less than 5 minutes. I added a cloth-bound cover for added protection to the watercolor paper and an elastic band to hold it securely together.
This is one of the fastest, easiest methods to make a watercolor sketchbook. You can use a single sheet of your favorite watercolor paper. Or... here's an opportunity to try out a sheet of another brand to see if you like it before you purchase a pad or block of it. The design and weight of the paper allows you to paint on both sides of the paper. The finished sketchbook is a standard size of 6" x 8", but if you prefer a different size, try one of the designs below to make an 8" x 8" square sketchbook or an 8"x 10" sketchbook from the same 22" x 30" size sheet of watercolor paper.
Just a reminder....these sketchbooks would make wonderful gifts!
