How to Make a Unicorn Notebook

To make your Unicorn Notebook, you will need the following materials:

DIY Unicorn Notebook - Supplies

Measure and cut stationary papers into the required size (required length and twice the required width). Group 4 stationary papers together and fold them into half to create a crease along the middle line (fold widthwise).

DIY Unicorn Notebook - Step 1

Hold all 4 papers together and use the needle to poke 2 holes on the middle part of the middle crease. The distance between the holes should be same as the length of the stapling pin.

DIY Unicorn Notebook - Step 2

After poking both holes take a stapling pin and insert the pins on both sides through the holes.

DIY Unicorn Notebook - Step 3

Turn the pages to the other side and flatten the pins with the papers. Similarly prepare a few more papers.

DIY Unicorn Notebook - Step 4

Hold the group of stapled papers together along their closed end; make sure that the end is matched nicely.  Cut out a small piece of paper (about 2 x 3 inches will do; but you might need larger piece if the notebook is larger). Apply glue on any one side of the small paper.

DIY Unicorn Notebook - Step 5

Hold the group of stapled papers together on their closed end and stick the glued paper from one end of the group of paper to the other end to secure them together. Measure the thickness of the group of papers.

DIY Unicorn Notebook - Step 6

Cut out the notebook cover from cardstock paper. Add 2 cm to the length and 2 cm + (the thickness of the group of papers from previous step) cm to the width of the stationary paper measurement from step one.

DIY Unicorn Notebook - Step 7

Apply glue along the middle part of the cover cut out.

DIY Unicorn Notebook - Step 8

Place the closed end of the stacked papers along the glued area. Press the closed end on the glued part firmly to make sure that it is glued nicely.

DIY Unicorn Notebook - Step 9

Now fold and glue the extra sides of the cover inside.

DIY Unicorn Notebook - Step 10

Gather colored craft papers and trace the patterns from the unicorn template on the papers. Cut out the patterns using scissors.

DIY Unicorn Notebook - Step 11

Glue the cut outs on the front side of the cover to create the unicorn pattern.

DIY Unicorn Notebook - Step 12

Once you are done gluing the cut outs use a pencil to draw the eyes, nose and lip of the unicorn.

DIY Unicorn Notebook - Step 13

Use a black marker pen to trace along the pencil drawing. Then you’re done!
