Step 1: Grab Your Materials
You will need:
1 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper.
1 pair of scissors
Step 2: Folding...
Fold your paper in half three times, so that it is now in eighths.
Step 3: Cut...
Unfold all the way, and then fold in half once. Take your scissors and cut on the crease from the fold to the center.
Step 4: Fold in a Weird Way...
Unfold the paper and fold it again lengthwise, so that the cut you made is at the top. Push the ends together so that the cut forms a diamond. Keep pushing until it goes flat. Then crease all folds and admire your book.
I use these for many reasons, including writing down random stuff.
Seriously, I have at least fifty of these things lying around my house.
This is my first Instructable, so don't be harsh!
Step 5: Template
This template can be used if you wish to place text and pictures on the book before folding the book up. Please note that this is not exact for the lines and stuff, so don't save the image and erase the numbers and everything. Another note: pages 4 through 7 must be printed upside-down, otherwise the text and pictures will be upside-down after folding.
This was an excellent idea by bruno16029, and I decided to go through with it.
