Introduction: DIY Notebooks 2 Ways

Hi! I'm going on some trips later and always want to stay organized, so I created these super cute DIY notebooks. So, I wanted to show all of you. Let's get started!

Step 1: Notebook 1: Decorating

For this notebook, we're simply decorating an old one.

You'll need:

  • an old notebook
  • paper
  • any adhesive
  • any decorations

All you need to do is trace your notebook cover on a piece of paper, cut it off, and glue it onto the notebook. Then, add any decorations you want.

Step 2: Notebook 2: Creating

For this, you'll need:

  • cardboard
  • ruler
  • craft knife
  • pen

So, measure how big you want your notebook to be, then cut. Score the middle by lightly cutting the cardboard with a craft knife. If you want to decorate, look at the first step. If you want to create inserts, look at the next step.

Step 3: Notebook 2: Inserts

So, for this you'll need:

  • cardboard notebook in step 2
  • smaller notebook or insert
  • yarn or elastic
  • tape or hot glue

Cut a piece of yarn about the same height as the cardboard notebook. Then, tape the top and bottom to the inside. Slide in an insert, and you're done!
