I love writing with a fountain pen, and found it very difficult to find blotting paper. So when I found a huge pack I thought little booklets might be a nice thing to do with it.

Using gorgeous papers I cut the covers, which are folded like huge match booklets, and then fill them with 5 sheets of blotting paper, which I cut to approximately 20cm by 10cm (8" by 4"), and fold in the centre. They're simply stapled into the booklet cover. You can tear out a whole sheet or half a sheet just as easily, depending on the size of the item you need to blot. I like to leave a small sheet inside my journal, using it both as a blotter and a page marker.
