We made this little DIY Mini Notebooks from a sheet of paper quite a few months ago and only now are we FINALLY sharing them here on Red Ted Art. Ooops! You may have spotted them over on our YouTube channel already, but I thought it was about time to share them here, in case you hadn’t. These DIY Notebooks are super duper cute and fun to make – they are based o KIRIGAMI, ie they are not an origami notebook, as there is some cutting involved. But they ARE a bit like magic. Once you have learn the knack of how to make them, you will want to make them over and over again and decorate them in lots of different ways (e.g. we made a cuet Square Emoji Notebook DIY version already).
So, if you are in need of craft ideas for kids this summer (especially if it is raining like it is here!!) you will love this notebook tutorial, as it is easy, simple, fun and only needs one sheet of paper to make this adorable mini notebook.
We have some matching Kawaii Pencil Holders too! So quick and easy to make!
Perfect for School Supplies lovers too!
DIY Notebook Craft – Materials Needed
- As mentioned each notebook only needs ONE SHEET of paper. Any paper of any dimension swill do, but we used an A4 sheet of paper.
- You will also need scissors and pens for decorating.
- Though these one sheet notebooks are “no glue”, we DID use a TINY bit of glue for decorating… but you can of course use pens instead!
