Introduction: Notebooks From Scratch
Learn how to make a super simple notebook that takes only twenty minutes to make! A great gift idea or just to keep for yourself.
Step 1: You Will Need:
-cardboard, I used an old national geographic store bag
-needle and thread
-paint and brush
-ruler (optional, I didn't use one)
Step 2: The Cover
cut your cardboard to the size you would like.
Step 3: The Cover Design
Add two colours of paint and blend them together to create an ombre effect. You can keep yours in the corner like I did or cover the whole cover.
Once your paint is dry you can draw your design on the book with a sharpie or any marker.
Step 4: The Paper
You want to make sure that every piece of paper is exactly the same size. Cut the paper so that there is a boarder all the way around the cover of at least half a centimeter
Step 5: The Spine
Add three holes using pins. Thread the cotton onto the needle and begin sewing threw the cover and the paper.
Basically just sew it all together.
Step 6: FINISHED!
congratulations on completing the notebook. As reward you win an imaginary potato!
