DIY Pokémon Notebook Craft
You can bet that with the Detective Pikachu movie out and Pokémon GO all the rage, we were excited to make these Pokémon Charmander & Pikachu notebooks!
My youngest daughter, Mimi, is obsessed with making her own books. She is so creative that she uses her craft supplies to make her own. So, lined paper, construction paper and glue. She loves writing her own stories, making picture books, or both! So this is PERFECT if you have a child like mine.
If you have a Pokémon fan who wants a Pokémon Birthday party, a school craft, or just for a rainy day–this DIY Pokémon Notebook Craft is for you! I even through in Bulbasaur, Evee, and Jigglypuff in the TEMPLATE too!

Read on for the full step-by-step guide to make your own DIY Pokémon notebook craft!
Things You Will Need:
- coloured pencils
- craft glue
- coloured craft papers
- stationary papers
- needle and thread
- black sharpie
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.
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.
Tie a knot with both ends of the thread and cut off extra thread.
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.
Cut out the Pikachu patterns from coloured craft papers. Use the patterns from the given template.
Use a black sharpie to fill the eye cutouts and to draw the top black part of the ears.
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.
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.
Press the closed end of the sheets against the glued side firmly and close the cover. Allow the glue to dry entirely.
