How to make easy Pokémon Mini Notebooks

Decide a size for the notebook. I made 3 inches x 3 inches sized notebooks and the templates are also customised for printing onto an A4 size sheet. Prepare pages for the mini notebook by cutting 3 inches x 6 inches stationary sheets. I’m using 6 sheets for each notebook. Hold all 6 sheets together and fold the 6 inches into half. Now we have 3 inches x 3 inches group of pages.

Prepare a needle and thread. Unfold the sheets and insert the needle through the middle crease (folding line) of the folded sheets and pull the needle all the way through the other side of the sheets but keep 2 inches thread extra on this side. Insert and draw the needle back inwards by keeping a 1 inch gap between both holes.

Grab the notebook cover prepared in step 4. Use craft glue to attach the ear cut outs on the top side of the notebook cover, overlapping about an inch of the ear’s bottom ends with the notebook cover’s top end. Also, attach the eyes.
