List of Supplies:
- Colored craft papers
- Craft glue
- Black sharpie
- Stationary papers
Select colored craft papers and cardstock papers for this project. Use a pencil to trace the patterns from the template on the selected papers and neatly cut out the traced patterns. The template includes ears, horn and cheek blushes of the unicorn and flower patterns. Use cardstock papers for the ears and horn and craft papers for the flowers and other decoration.
Take the small part of the ear (pink colored) and glue it inside the big ear pattern; similarly prepare the other ear. I used a silver candy wrapper to cover the cardstock horn pattern; you can use any color you want. The flowers include 3 parts; glue them one on the top of the other, placing the smaller ones on top.
Now, let’s prepare the notebook. Gather a bunch of stationary papers and a white cardstock paper. Determine the size of the notebook and prepare the papers accordingly. But keep in mind to keep the width twice the required size. For instance, my notebook is 12 cm x 8 cm so I had to cut the papers into 12 cm x 16 cm. Fold the prepared stationary papers into half along its width to create a crease. Stitch or staple the stationary papers along the middle line.
Fold the cardstock paper (12 cm x 8 cm) into half along its width as well. The cardstock paper will be cover of the notebook.
Turn the cover paper to its wrong side and place it on a flat surface. Stick the ears and the horn pattern along the top side of the cover; the patterned sides of the ears and horn should face the right side of the cover.
Cut out a piece of cardstock paper (8 cm x 4 cm) and apply glue on any one side of it.
Place the glued side of the paper on the top end of the notebook-cover to cover the overlapped parts of the ears and the horn.
Fold the notebook cover and this is how the front side looks like.
Take the prepared flowers and glue them one by one along the top side of the front cover, below the ears and the horn of the unicorn.
Use a pencil to draw the face features of the unicorn on the front cover, below the flowers. You can trace the one I drew or come up with your own pattern.
Use a black sharpie to draw the traced face of the unicorn.
Grab the stationary papers prepared in step 4. Unfold the cover and apply glue along the middle crease of the cover.
Place the closed end of the papers along the glued part of the cover.
Close the cover and press it along the glued part to make sure that the papers are glued securely.
Allow the glue to dry.
