DIY Notebook Instructions:

STEP 1: Pick your craft paper.

Once you've downloaded our printable (available at the bottom of the page), pick the colored craft paper and cardstock you've chosen for this notebook. Take a pencil and trace each pattern from our template on your chosen paper and cut out the shapes you've traced.

Our template includes the unicorn's ears, horns, blushing cheeks, and the flowers. I recommend using cardstock for both the ears and horns. For the flower and other extra decor items, I would use papercraft.

STEP 2: Create each unicorn piece.

Get the small pink part of the ear and glue it onto the bigger ear pattern. Do the same with the other ear.

To get a shiny and eye-catching horn, I loved using silver paper, but feel free to use any color and finish you like best. You just need to wrap the horn in it and glue it in place.

For the flowers, take the 3 parts and glue them together; make sure to place them from larger to smaller, placing the smallest flower on the top.

STEP 3: Make your notebook!

Time to get the notebook ready. First, get your white cardstock and the paper you've chosen to work with. It can be any paper, from basic white stationary papers or something fancier.

Pick the size you want the notebook to be and prep the papers according to that, keeping in mind the width should be twice the required size.

For example, for this notebook is 12 cm x 8 cm so I had to cut the papers into 12 cm x 16 cm. 

Once that's done, you just need to fold the papers. Fold the paper in half width ways to create the crease. You can either stitch or staple the middle line, whatever works best for you.

STEP 4: Make your notebook cover.

Now you need to fold the white cardstock paper into half along its width just like you did on the previous step with the stationary paper. This will be the notebook's cover.

STEP 5: Start putting it together.

Taking the cover paper, turn it to its wrong side and place it on a table or any flat surface. Then, attach the ears and the horn on the top side of the cover. Make sure the coloured side of both the horn and the ears are facing the right side of the cover.

Cut a piece of cardstock paper the size of the cover and add a bit of glue on one side.

Place it on the top part of the notebook's cover. This way you'll be covering up the area where the ears and the horn overlapped.

Now fold the cover and that's how the front should look!

STEP 6: Glue your flowers.

Take the prepared flowers and glue them one by one along the top side of the front cover, below the ears and the horn of the unicorn.

STEP 7: Draw your unicorn's face.

Draw the unicorn's face with a pencil below the flowers. Feel free to trace the one I did on this craft or get creative and design your own.

Use a black marker to permanently draw all the features you traced with the pencil.

Grab the stationary papers prepared in step 4. Unfold the cover and apply glue along the middle crease of the cover.

Glue the pages in place. Close the cover once you've glued the papers inside. Apply some pressure and allow it to dry.

And.... you're done!

How cute is this unicorn craft! I love the fact kids can use it and get creative by drawing on its pages, it makes the whole craft-time fun last longer. 

And if you're homeschooling your little ones, I find having kid-friendly stationary things like notebooks, pencils, and other pretty school supplies kids are instantly drawn to, really helps to keep them engaged during the learning process.

So I hope you find this DIY notebook useful and have fun with your kids making it! Enjoy!
