DIY Printable Notebook

Free DIY Printable Notebooks by Jessica Marie Design

I am obsessed with notebooks. 
I couldn't even tell you how many blank (& beautiful) notebooks I have laying around. 
Notebooks are my weakness! 

This isn't the first time I create DIY notebooks, remember this? Well in the spirt of making old things new, or in this case making old blog posts new again, I've create new DIY printable (& Customizable) notebooks!

The DIY Printable Notebook file (download link in the instructions section) comes with two patterns and two customization options! The notebooks come in black & white polka dots and pink stripes. You have the option of customizing with your monogram or with regular text!

DIY Printable Notebooks

Materials:
Instructions:
  1. Download the DIY Printable Notebook PDF
  2. Open the file in Adobe Reader. Adobe Reader is free. Opening the file in other programs may show a different font.
  3. Edit the monogram in the following format: First name initial: lowercase, Last name initial: uppercase, Middle Name initial: lowercase
  4. Edit the text pages. Customize with your name or notebook title.
  5. Save the file.
  6. Print! For the best results do NOT scale the page. Borderless printing will provide you with the correct notebook size. Search Google for "Borderless printing with "printer name here" printer" for instructions. Note that some printers do not have borderless printing, in that case I recommend printing a test page to see how it works. I also recommend printing on white card stock. If you have access to laminating that would be great! I'm not sure how stitching works on laminated paper but it is worth a try!
  7. Trim the DIY printable notebook cover & page template.
  8. Use a scoring board to score the center of your notebook. Or simply fold it down the middle :)
  9. Use the Page Template to trim the inside pages for your notebook. You can use a scoring board/trimming board to make this easier. I used 6 sheets of paper for my notebook, this was all my sewing machine could handle! 
  10. Use Binder Clips to keep the pages together before you sew. Not sewing your notebook together? Use a stapler to attach your pages together.
  11. Enjoy your new custom notebooks!
