Hello young champs! In this edition of  DIY with Todd, you will learn how to make a notebook all by yourself. All we need is one A4 sheet of any colour, a black gel pen, a pair of scissors and a lot of colour pencils!

The first thing you have to do is fold the A4 sheet vertically along its length. Then fold it once more, again vertically along its length.

Step 1

Now, straighten back the paper and fold it twice horizontally, this time along its breadth. Fold it vertically in half again and you will observe three-fold lines on the sheet.

Step 2

Cut along half of the three lines in the middle, from the fold outwards. Then open up the paper and you will see three slits in the centre as shown in the pic.

Step 3

Cut alongside the centre of the slit portions as shown in red.

Step 4

Fold the cut-out squares inwards and turn the paper backwards.

Step 5

Fold the previous formation into two halves from each side. Then place it in a horizontal position and fold it in half.

Step 6

Start folding it inwards horizontally from the sides and then hold it upwards in a fan-like position as shown in the pic.

Step 7

Voila! Your notebook is ready. Beautify it with a pattern you like and write your name on it.
