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
-sharpie
-paper
-scissors
-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!
