After sharing my Cinco de Mayo fiesta decor with ASTROBRIGHTS Papers this spring, I’m back with another paper craft! This time, use vibrant colors to make eye-catching notebooks for your kids (that you’ll want to use too).
How to Make Paper Notebooks in Minutes
- ASTROBRIGHTS Papers “Primary” Color Assortment Cardstock
- Orbit Orange™ Cardstock
- Solar Yellow™ Cardstock
- Blast-Off Blue™ Cardstock
- ASTROBRIGHTS Papers Premium Inkjet & Laser Paper, Astro White
- ASTROBRIGHTS Paper, Eclipse Black™
- Glue stick
- Alphabet stickers, black and/or white
- Black marker/pen
Step 1: Select about 10 pieces of ASTROBRIGHTS Papers Premium Inkjet & Laser Paper and fold them in half. Then fold a piece of your desired cardstock and place it over the white papers.
Step 2: Unfold a stapler and carefully staple the middle of the fold. Then staple either side, closer to the edge of the paper. Depending on your stapler, you may need to do this with a pad underneath to protect your work surface. This is the most basic way to make a binding for easy paper notebooks.

These easy paper notebooks are fun to make for your kids (or with their help) if you’re looking for an easy back-to-school craft! No matter how your kids return to school this year, I hope these help them feel excited about the new school year.
