Picture of Make a Death Note using Graphite Transfer
Need a Death Note for your next cosplay? Just want a coffee table piece? Make one today with this foolproof method that even the most artistically challenged can do.

I actually haven't watched alot of Death note, but my friend has a sister who absolutely loves it. For her birthday, said friend wanted to get her a Death Note. He didn't know how to do it and since I'm an Art Education major he drafted me to do it.

Using a graphite transfer method was the simplest and most cost effective means I could think of. So long as you can color in the lines you're good. I made Brian's sister two notebooks, Light Yagami's and Misa Amane's. Since it was finals week when he asked me to do this, I made Light's first. I didn't think to make an instructible until I got around to this one. I used the same method for Light's.

Also, don't mind my terrible pictures. I didn't have any other camera save for the webcam that was build into my computer.

Nice way of making it!
You could also try using pre-made graphite or chalk transfer paper, available at most craft supply stores, for those of you who prefer that sort of thing.
