DIY notebooks

You’ll need :

1. sewing machine and thread

2. 15 sheets of paper

3. scissors

4. Bristol paper

5. pens, pencil colors or water colors. ( what ever you want to decorate your notebooks.)

6. paper cutter


* Cut the paper length and width you want, you are going to fold the paper in half so for example : if you want your book to be 4×4″ you’ll need to cut 4×8″(double the length), and do the same with your bristol. ( the bristol will be the cover, so you’ll need just one sheet.) cut the bristol a little bigger than the sheets of paper. just like you see in the picture below.


* fold in half your bristol paper a little so you’ll see whats the size and what would be in the back and front. Now you can start painting or drawing on it.

* If you used water colors let it dry.





*put the paper sheets over the bristol paper (make sure the bristol is dry)  now start sewing them together, make sure you sew exactly in the middle and straight (because that is the part you are going to fold).




* After is all sew together fold it in half. The inside is going to look like this:









* And the outside like this :









* Now your Hand made Note book its finish. Don’t forget to sign it.
