How to make a notebook?
The folios are separations that are made within the notebook, this with the purpose of separating subjects, contents, etc. It is important to note that all the sheets can be of different colors, and each sheet can be customized to your liking.
The materials to use;
- White sheets
- Pair of scissors
- liquid white gum
- Sheets of the color of your choice
- Decorations to your liking
to start make the notebook once you have all the materials, It is important that the folio can be bound, this in order to do it as a notebook without ringing, if it is to your liking and comfort you can also make it ringed.
Step 1.- Decide the size you want for the notebook
Start by cutting out the sheet paper, you can make the notebook the size of the full white sheet or you can cut it in half, this way the notebook will be smaller; both ways would be fine
Step 2.- Take the measurements of the sheets and their thickness, transfer them to the sheet
Take the cardboard or cardboard from the folio, with this you are going to measure or calculate the number of sheets that can fit, so that the sheet does not look so thick or thin, I recommend approximately 80 to 100 sheets
Step 3.- Join the sheets together to fix them to the folio and not disarm them
Because the folio is hard, it is recommended to glue the sheets, since cooking them by hand or making them ring-shaped may not have the same visual appearance, but it is up to you
Step 4.- The easiest way to join the sheets is using white glue and weight
One technique for gluing the sheets to the folio is place all the sheets neatly one on top of the other, add enough liquid white rubber on one side, and place two heavy boards, one below and one on top, and put weight on the sheets, so that they can stick well
Step 5.- Verify that the edge of the sheets is well joined together
Once the rubber dries, remove the boards and extra weight, you must verify that all the sheets are well glued, and there are no loose ones, if this happens, you must add a little more glue, and wait again for them to dry
Step 6.- Paste the sheets of paper with the folio to form the notebook
Place the glued sheets inside the folioadd enough glue to the volume of the folio, and place the sheets on the same side where they are already glued previously
Step 7.- Let the notebook dry very well in a safe place
Put the notebook you just made somewhere to dry, if you can. place them against a wall or structure, so that the volume has much better pressure, since it ensures that the sheets stick perfectly
Finish decorating the folio as you prefer!!
