Decide how you are going to keep your Book of Shadows. You can keep it on your
computer, in a spiral notebook, in a binder, or splurge on a leather journal. Many
people use binders because of the ability to shuffle pages around and create
sections, and some prefer to keep it as a diary. 
Lay down a statement of your beliefs. What do you believe in? Who are your patron
gods/goddesses, if any? Do you follow the Wiccan Rede or the Threefold Law? Do you
believe in spell casting, or only in ritualistic worship? These questions and more
can help you get a better sense of your beliefs and put them on paper. (This is for
your benefit only, and is by no means a requirement.) 
Write down any rituals or spells you have created, step by step. Date all your
entries for future reference. 
Write down any rituals or spells you perform as well as influences such as moon
phases etc, and what the results are. You can look back on these later and see how
you are progressing, or what you may be able to do differently. 
Include chants, poetry, stories, artwork, etc, whether created by yourself or others.
As long as it inspires you, or honors the God/Goddess, it is fair game. 
All BOS need to have correspondence pages. At least the basics such as the moon
phases and their meanings, basic color charts. 

[edit] TipsScope out crafts stores for embellishments, stickers, and other
scrapbooking goodies for use in your book. 
Don't forget the glitter glue! 
Computer-based Books of Shadows aren't traditional (yet), but you may find this
method considerably easier to maintain than a dead-tree version. Note-taking
programs, such as Google Notebook, Evernote, or MS Office OneNote, are useful for
this purpose. Remember to back it up--you might want to keep a Thumb Drive of

[edit] Things You'll NeedA notebook, binder, dividers, etc. 
Pens, pencils. 
Coloured pencils, glue and other crafty kit for any decorations and 
A computer
