River Song's Diary

My sister loves Doctor Who so I made her a 'River Song's Diary' for Christmas.
I saw lots of peoples attempts on the internet, but this is how I decided to make mine.

I started by removing the covers of an A5 sketchbook, bought from The Works.
I cut out the Tardis squares from card and glued them to the covers.

I covered the card with sticky-back blue material and used a hair grip to push it in the grooves and bring out the detail.

I used a craft knife to uncover the holes in the covers and then I put them back on the wire spiral to reassemble the book.
Some people then distress their book to match the original one from the show, but I figure that'll happen over time.

My sister loved it, and she assumed I'd bought it, she thought it was that good.

Pin it!

  1. Wow, that's really professional looking - I can see why your sister thought you'd bought it! It's so much cooler that you made it though. Great job!! I love Dr. Who stuff. x) Thanks for sharing!
