Have a go at making your own notebook that looks like it has been preloved by someone from a long time ago.

Art and Craft Supplies

A4 paper
Ribbon
Hole punch
2 tsp instant coffee
Mug
Boiling water
Tray
Paper towels

Method



Depending on how many pages you want your notebook to be, take some A4 paper and align them together.



Fold the paper down the middle so that it looks like a book.



Use a hole punch to create two holes along the rim.



Make small tears in the paper, crumple it all up, and unfold it again.



Place the paper in a tray.



Put two teaspoons of instant coffee in a mug, pour in the boiling water, and stir.



Pour a small amount of the coffee into the tray so that the paper colours.
Leave the paper to soak up the liquid for five minutes, the drain the excess coffee.



Place the paper inside paper towels, and allow it to absorb any extra liquid.



Hang the paper over the radiator to dry for about half an hour.



String the ribbon through the holes and tie it up.
