Tips to Make this Pokemon Craft Idea
- Caution: Do not think that you are just going to make one Pikachu notebook and that’s where it will stop. You will want to catch them all. Right now, my daughter is using her Evee notebook to keep a tally of all the times she’s beaten me at the card game.
- These convenient and awesome templates that you can download here are set-up to be made into 3-inch by 3-inch sized notebooks for printing on an A4 size sheet. You can adjust them to your desired size.
- Make sure your folds are sharp by running the side of a pencil or your sharpie marker down the fold.
How Do I Make these Pokemon Notebooks?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial. If you have any questions, please let me know in the comments below.
- Craft glue
- Colored craft papers
- Stationary paper sheets
- Pokemon Templates
- Needle and thread, any color
- Black sharpie
- Make the inside pages for the mini notebook first by cutting out 3-inch by 6-inch stationary paper sheets, 6 sheets for each notebook.
- Straighten and hold all 6 sheets together then fold them in half, making the 3-inch by 3-inch paper for our notebooks. Be sure to sharpen the fold so you can find it precisely when the sheets are unfolded in the next step.
- Go ahead and thread your needle. Unfold the sheets you just folded and insert the needle through the crease of the fold. Pull the needle all the way through to the other side, stopping when you have 2 inches of thread remaining on this side. Stitch at 1-inch intervals.
- Tie two knots on both ends of the thread and trim extra. Set aside.
- To make the Pikachu notebook cover, grab a sheet of yellow-colored craft paper. Fold the sheet’s 6-inch long side in half.
- Cut out the Pikachu patterns from the templates on the correct-colored craft paper sheets. Use the black sharpie to color in the eyes and the tips of the ears.
- Use craft glue to attach the ears onto the top side of the notebook cover, overlapping them by about an inch. Also, glue on the eyes, as shown in the photos.
- Glue on the 2 red circles on both cheeks and draw-in the other features of Pikachu’s face with the black sharpie.
- Unfold the cover and put ample glue along the middle fold line. Place the closed end of the inside, folded sheets along the glue in the cover’s middle fold line.
- Close the cover and sharpen the crease by folding it again.
- Allow the glue to dry overnight.
