Linda shows you how to make cute DIY notebooks with Mod Podge and your favorite papers – this is the perfect budget craft idea!
Hello there, fellow Mod Podgers! It’s Linda here, from burlap+blue, with a super simple, get-the-kids involved, great for back-to-school craft project!
When I saw these plain, kraft-covered notebooks at Target this past week, I knew that they were begging to be decorated. I took them home, and, an hour or so later, I had these cuties! Here’s how to make these DIY notebooks – you won’t believe how easy it is.
Cute DIY Notebooks
Gather These Supplies
- Mod Podge Gloss
- plain notebooks
- foam brush
- scrapbook paper
Step 1: Decide on your design, and start cutting and arranging your scrapbook paper to fit. For the bird/nest notebook, I used some pretty pink/green/blue papers that I found at a local scrapbook store. I started with a branch and a couple of leaves, mod podged them to the notebook . . .
Step 3: Once you have your designs adhered to your notebook, wait for it to dry, and then coat the design with a thin layer of Mod Podge.
Again, these cute DIY notebooks are a great project to get the kids involved with, and would make an adorable teacher gift for the first day of school! At $1.50 per notebook, they won’t break the bank, either.
