How to make a notebook?
the folios are separations that are made inside the notebook, this in order to separate subjects, contents, etc. It is important to note that all sheets can be in different colors, and each sheet can be customized to your liking.
The materials to be used;
liquid white gum
Sheets in the color of your choice
Decorations to your liking
To start to make the notebook after having all the materials, It is important that the folio can be bound, this to make it like an untouched notebook, if it is to your liking and comfort you can also do it with a ring.
Step 1.- Decide the size you want for the notebook
Start by cutting the sheet of paper, you can make the notebook the size of the whole white sheet or you can cut it in half, so the notebook will be smaller; either way would be fine
Step 2.- Take the measurements of the sheets and their thickness, transfer them to the sheet
Take the cardstock or folio cardstock, with this you will measure or calculate the number of leaves that can fit well, so that the folio is not too thick or too thin, I recommend approximately 80-100 sheets
Step 3.- Join the sheets to fix them to the folio and not disassemble them
Because the folio is hard, it is recommended to glue the sheets, as cooking them by hand or shaping them into a ring may not look the same, but it’s 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 on top of each other, add enough liquid white glue on one side and put two heavy boards, one from below and one from above, and put weight on the sheets, so that they are thin
Step 5.- Check if the edges of the sheets are well joined
After the gum dries, remove the boards and extra weight, you must check that all the sheets are well glued, and that 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 folio. add enough glue to the volume of the folio, and place the sheets on the same side where they were previously glued
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 are perfectly glued
Finish decorating the folio as you prefer!!
