How to make your Harry Potter Mini Books DIY
So it is video time again – please let me know if you do fancy some step by step photos of how to assemble these oh so easy Mini Notebooks. We HAVE Made these notebooks before – in Pokemon, Minion and cute Nutella Notebook formats.. so hopefully you are familiar with the instructions already!!
Step by step DIY Harry Potter Mini Book assembly instructions
- First you will need a copy of the Harry Potter Book Sleeves Printables – you can quickly and easily download them here: printables
- Cut out your four books – be sure to leave the white boarder shown on the printable.
- Fold along the dotted lines – start with the the lines running horizontally across your book.
- Now fold the vertical dotted lines.
- Finally, fold the spine lines of each book.
- Your DIY Harry Potter book mini COVERS are finished. Now to make the pages.
- Take your book cover and place it next to your A4 sheet of paper and mark the HEIGHT of the book. You want your pages to be about 2mm shorter than your book cover. Cut out two strips at this height.
- Next, align your Harry Potter Mini Book cover to measure the WIDTH of each page. Again, you want the width of each page to be approximately 2mm shorter. Make a small mark and fold.
- Now concertina the rest of your paper and repeat with the second strip.
- If you have more than “half a page” left at the end, leaf it – that is great for tucking into your DIY Book Sleeves. If it is less, trim it.
- Now insert one end of your concertina paper into your Harry Potter Booksleeve.
- Repeat with the second paper on other side of your book.
Note: your pages at the centre of the mini notebook will NOT be connect (after all this is a NO GLUE Mini Notebook project)… if this bothers you, you can glue them together with a little glue stick. It is totally up to you! You can also insert a 3rd line of mini notebook pages if you wish, but you WILL need to glue for that to connect the pages up.
