You might have spotted this little notebook from the package for our summer quest.

Ideal for writing down clues, little sketches, or answers to puzzles, a notebook is super important to every curious explorer.

To make one yourself you need:
– the cover design (download here)
– a printer to print it, preferably on heavy paper to have a strong cover.
– a few sheets of A4 paper
– knife or scissors
– a stapler.
– something soft like a cork coaster.

  1. Take 2-3 sheets of A4 paper and cut them in half. I used off-white paper because I think it’s nice with this cover but white will work just fine. You can use simple printer paper or any other type that’s not too thick.
  2. Fold each piece in half.

3. Put the sheets together as a booklet.

4. Print and fold the cover and align it with the sheets of paper. I printed 2 covers on one A4 so because my printer cannot print to the very edge, my cover is slightly smaller than the sheets but that’s ok.

5. Place the cover + folded sheets onto the cork and staple once or twice on the line created by the fold. I keep everything together with some small clamps as you can see. The cork prevents the staples to pierce through your table :).

6. Pull the notebook from the cork and fold the staples to the middle.

7. Cut off any excess.

8. To stimulate the fold a bit extra, you can leave your notebook under some books overnight.

And that’s it!
