Instead of waiting for that new Starbucks planner which is very expensive, why not make a personalized leather planner.

I love making my own leather-bound customized journals, and the possibilities are always unlimited! I've made ones simply by covering cheap composition notebooks with fabric book-cover style, using paint pens to draw cool designs on the cover, plastering with stickers, stenciling my initials, and even pressing dried and pressed flowers into the inside cover for a really unique flair. Handmade journals also make really fun and unique handmade cookbooks and even recipe books, too!

Buying journals can be expensive, but they are a great gift! I love this DIY version!
