You will need:

A Piece of Origami Paper

Step 2: Preparing the Paper

Fold the piece of origami paper in half.

Flatten and cut along the fold. This should leave you with two identical pieces of origami paper.

Step 3: Preparing the Paper 2

Place these two piece of paper and to end, and glue them together. You now have one long piece of paper, which should be enough to fit over your Moleskine.

Step 4: Arrange the Paper

Lay the paper flat and place the Moleskine over top. Make sure the edge of the Moleskine lies over the place where the paper has been glued together - you will not want it directly on the hinge as this is a weak spot on the paper.

Fold the paper up over the cover. Fold the excess to the inside of the notebook as well - you may want to cut these shorter.

Step 5: Glue Paper

Large Moleskine cahiers are my writing journal of choice - just like school exercise books, with better covers. Always looking for ways to personalise them, or make them more functional. Simple idea, and fun!

Nice instructable. By the way, I hope you know that "cahier" is just French for "notebook" and isn't a specific model name.

I'm pretty sure Moleskine has a line specifically called "cahier"
