Supplies Needed to Make Pokémon Notebooks: coloured paper, scissors, needle and thread, glue stick, ruler, pencil, and marker.

Things You Will Need:

Pieces of lined paper folded into a mini notebook.

Step 1:

First of all, decide the size for the notebook. I made 3 inches x 3 inches sized notebooks and the TEMPLATES are also customized for printing on 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.

Step 2:

Furthermore, prepare 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.

A knot is tied to keep the mini book together.

Step 3:

Tie a knot with both ends of the thread and cut off extra thread.

Step 4:

To make the Pikachu notebook cover, select and prepare a 6 inches x 3 inches yellow coloured craft paper. Fold the 6 inches side into half. 3 inches x 3 inches notebook cover is ready.

All the parts are cut out from the template. Ears, cheeks, and eyes.

Step 5:

Cut out the Pikachu patterns from coloured craft papers. Use the patterns from the given template.

Eyes are coloured black with a yellow speck, ear tips are coloured in as well. The Pokemon Mini Notebook sits next to pieces.

Step 6:

Use a black sharpie to fill the eye cutouts and to draw the top black part of the ears.

Step 7:

Grab the notebook cover prepared in step 4. Use craft glue to attach the ear cutouts 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.

Cheese,mouth, cheeks and nose of added onto face.

Step 8:

Attach the 2 red circles on both cheeks and draw the other features of Pikachu’s face.

Unfold the cover and apply glue along the middle crease. Place the closed end of the stitched sheets along the glued part.

The finished product is a super adorable Pikachu notebook that is ready to be used.

Step 10:

Press the closed end of the sheets against the glued side firmly and close the cover. Allow the glue to dry entirely.
