    I am so tired of looking for new notebook and never find exactly what I want. So I thought, why not make my own? This tutorial will show you how to make your own notebook using an old record album cover. It also teaches a sewn in bookbinding technique. It may be that you have all these materials at home or something comparable. I used what I had at home. Here is what you’ll need:

    1. An old record album cover or any other large sized cardstock or thin cardboard. (manilla folder works well, thank-you to commenters below)
    2. Paper. This could be blank, lined, grapned, colored or anything else you’d like. For this specific project I used blank 8 1/2 x 14 copy paper, otherwise known as legal sized paper.
    3. Thread that won’t break, like embroidery thread. (it also must be a cotton, otherwise it will tend to cut the paper and through the binding holes. 100% cotton yarn works great as well, but you’ll have to make the holes a couple times larger for binding.
    4. Embroidery needle or other thick sized needle that will hold embroidery or bookbinding thread.
    5. Thumb tack.
    6. Ruler.
    7. Pencil.
    8. Large paper clips.
    9. Butter knife or bone folder.
    10. A paper-cutter or really good pair of scissors or a really sharp xacto knife or a box-cutter.

    It is a quick hack, even though the most difficult and time consuming part will be the stitching step.

    Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

    Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

    • Gather new material, both specific and general.
    • The Mental Digestive Process
    • Drop it
    • Poof, the idea appears
    • Work it

    Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
