CREATE YOUR OWN A6 JOURNAL

Hello!! As you know, last weekend I posted a video tutorial on Instagram about how you can create an A6 journal by your own. In this post, I will specify you all the materials and steps for this process.

MATERIALS:

  • 6 sheets of A4 white paper. (Usign 6 sheets, you will have a journal of 24 pages, if you want more, just add more sheets).
  • An A4 cover for your journal. (It will be better if it’s thicker than your sheets of paper. I recommend you to choose one that has more than 120 gsm).
  • Thread (you can choose the colour and the thickness that you want. I prefer to use a white and thick thread, as it’s more resistant).
  • A needle
  • Scissors, cutter or a rotary guillotine trimmer
  • A pencil
  • A ruler
  • An awl
  • Optional: use a corner rounder punch to make the corners of your journal rounded.
Corner Rounder Punch

STEPS:

  • Mark the middle of your A4 sheets (14’9 cm).
  • Cut them through the line. You will get 12 A5 sheets.
  • Now mark the middle of them (10’5 cm).
  • Fold them in half.
  • Use the corner punch to make the corners rounded
  • Cute the cover of your journal (11’5 x 16 cm)
  • Fold it in a half and round the corners
  • Put together the sheets and the cover. Make sure it’s aligned well
  • Mark two dots 4’5 cm from each side.
  • Poke holes
  • Cute a piece of thread. Double it. Its lenght should be twice longer than the height of the journal.
  • Thread a needle and tie two knots at the end of the thread.
  • Insert the needle from the outside to the journal to the inside of it. Repeat this process twice.
  • Tie a knot to the top/bottom of the outside of the cover. That’s all!

Here you have the video and some pictures of the final result. Hope this could be useful for you!
