DIY sticker book (using our sticker release paper)

Sticker release paper is coated paper you can use to store your stickers.

The stickers are removable and the paper is reusable. 

Note: adhesive effectiveness may depend on the sticker/manufacturer.  

In this post, we'll learn how to make a Slim A5/Travelers Notebook personal insert size sticker book. 

 Watch a video of this DIY on our youtube channel.

You'll need:
1 x A4 card (for the cover)
1 set of A4 sticker release sheets (we recommend a maximum of 10 sheets for the notebook)
1 stapler 

Buy sticker release paper here.

You'll also need a bone folder (or something with a blunt edge), 2 paperclips, a cutter and a ruler. 

You don't need to use an office grade stapler, there are ways to staple bind the notebook with an everyday stapler.
I'm using this long stapler from threeppy, your local office supply store should sell something similar, it's a good item to have for making your own notebooks. 

Step 1: fold the A4 card and all the sticker release sheets. 

This will make it easier to keep a notebook shape. 

Step 2: Align all the sheets and secure 2 sides with the paper clips. 

Step 3: Measure and mark where you'd like the staples to go. 
Step 4: Align the stapler to the fold of the card and staple the sheets together. 

This is what the staples look like inside and outside. Folding the paper at the beginning helps with the alignment. 

Step 5: Because of the thickness of the paper, after the binding, there will be some edges that will stick out. 
I recommend trimming them off. 

Step 6 (optional): You can leave the book as A5 or measure and trim it again to make a travelers notebook insert, also known as slim A5. 

I used the offcuts to create a mini book, it's great for keeping random strips of washi tape or giving stickers to friends! 

Final step is to decorate your new notebook! 

If you need more pages or the ability to swap out pages, we also have A5 sticker release sheets that can be punched with 6 or 20 hole upon request.
