1. Gather your materials. Collect all the materials you will need to construct and design your sketchbook: 20-30 sheets of drawing paper – Size A4 works well or even 9”x12” or 11”x14”. Patterned paper – This paper is for decorating the outside cover of your sketchbook. Depending on how you want to decorate you can use 3 different patterns for the cover of the sketchbook, the spine, and the interior of the sketchbook covers (endpaper). Cardboard – To make the covers of the sketchbook. Consider using thick paperboard rather than corrugated cardboard; it’ rather feeble. Glue – White school glue works just fine for painting the materials. Needle and thread – Using a thicker needle is advised, as well as thicker thread, such as string, yarn, or hemp. Ruler An awl or pushpin Pencil Small paintbrush or sponge brush
2. Create your sketchbook signatures. Create 3-4 piles of paper with six sheets of paper in each pile. Fold each pile of paper lengthwise, in half, so that you make a little booklet with multiple pages. One little booklet is a “signature” of your sketchbook. The signatures make up the pages of your sketchbook, and make binding your sketchbook a lot easier. Depending on how big you want your sketchbook to be, you can adjust the number of signatures you use. However, the more signatures you use, the harder it’ll be to bind your sketchbook and the bulkier your sketchbook will be.
3. Mark your signatures for binding. Stack the signatures on top of one another, and line up the top, bottom, and folded edges. Use a pencil to draw four, evenly spaced vertical lines across the spines of the signatures. It is very important that the marked lines are all even on the signatures. This will ensure that the sketchbook pages line up uniformly once bound. The lines nearest the top and bottom of the signatures should be at least an inch away from the edges.
4. Poke your binding holes. Unfold each signature so it lies flat, with the outer spine facing up. Use either an awl or a pushpin tack to push a hole through the lined markings on each signature spine. Be sure to keep the pages of each signature aligned so your binding holes are all evenly placed. Once the sharp object is pushed through all sheets of paper, consider wriggling the poking object around a bit, to gently widen the holes. This will make it easier to fit the thread through.

Step 2: Cutting the Pages. Okay my current design can hold 50 pages which in my opinion is more then enough for a single sketchbook. So take your 25 pages and laye them in front of you horizontaly. If you want 50 pages exactly it is probably better to take a few extras in case some get damaged while cutting.
