I saw simple and free printable reading materials for beginners. Then I thought it would be great to compile a notebook rather than just simply secure them with clips or a stapler. It looks much more presentable.


  • 10 pcs long sized bondpaper
  • 1/2 sized cardboard
  • scissors
  • glue
  • printed reading pages
  • transparent tape


  1. Stick one end of a bondpaper to another. Connect all bond papers together until a long straight line of bondpapers is created.

  3. Estimate the size of your reading pages and fold the bondpaper in zigzag according on its size.
  4. Make an accordion fold. It should look like this.
  5. Stick each page into the folds. See attached image.
  6. Glue the back portion.
  7. Place the notebook on top of cartulina (cardboard) to estimate its size.

  9. Fold the top and bottom of the cartulina (cardboard) according on its size.
  10. Fold the cartulina (cardboard) again vertically in half.
  11. Open it and fold both ends, too.
  12. Now, insert one blank page from the front onto the open fold. Do the same with the back portion.

  14. Secure them with transparent tape to avoid it from falling out.
  15. Stick the label into the front cover. And its done.
