Children enjoy making their own personal sketch book,  taking time to teach them how to make their own, rather than buying a premade one, is so much more full-filling and rewarding.

This is how we make them.

Fold 5 pieces of a4 paper in half, lay them on top of each other , then sew up the spine using cotton and a back stitch.

Use a piece of cardboard and cut it to an a5 size. Cover this with a pretty paper or comic both inside and out( x 2 )

Then put sellotape up and down the spine to adhere the front page to cover book.
