I have had a similar issue in the past - that is, until I found out about art journaling and altered books, as well as learned more about scrapbooking. Because I am an artistic person at heart, I felt like I should give it a try. And let me tell you, this scrapbook feels like the best form of BOS for me. I have gone through notebooks and binders and diaries. Though I still use a composition notebook for random notes and a 3 ring binder for essays and whatnot, I use the scrapbook as the final product for each and every bit of information I finish.
My greatest piece of advice for you is to meditate on it. Who are you, in your soul? Are you creative - a writer, an artist, a photography, or a musician? Are you obsessed with order, or is a little chaos alright with you? Do you think have a book that has the ability to change the order of pages or static pages a good idea? Make a list of all of the things you want your BOS to be, whether realistic or not - do not think about what you are writing down, just write what you want in a BOS. :D They are very personal books, and each BOS resonates with its creators energy :D
