Hello and happy weekend everyone! In some parts of Germany, many small kids were just having their first day at school this week and this is why I'm sharing this DIY for a school notebook with a free printable with school-themed illustrations to glue onto the notebook.
Maybe some of you even want to make such a notebook for university or their job, just without the school stuff!? :)
Here we go:
Supplies for making a notebook:
- A normal excercise book in any size you like
- Pretty paper for the cover
- A plier to remove the staples
- Scissor, ruler, glue, pens, masking tape
- Needle and thread or a sewing machine
- A printer for printing out the free printables
How to make your own notebook with a pretty cover:
Leave some millimeters space when cutting out so that everything fits nicely when closing the notebook.
Then open it again, use your needle and thread or your sewing machine and sew all layers onto each other.
School-themed illustration and free printable
As a next step, print out the pree printable. You can either use the colored one or the black and white version for letting your kid color it itself.

Embellish your notebook
As a next step, you can now cut out the illustrations. Leave them like they are or color them (with your kid).
Have lots of fun with making this pretty notebook, I bet this makes writing down homework or notes a lot happier! :)
Have a lovely weekend!
