Back to School Notebook Sales – Don’t Miss ’em!

Back to School Notebook Sales - Don't Miss 'em!

Do you walk past the stacks and stacks of spiral notebooks in the big box stores at this time of year and think, “Wish I had a project for those $0.17 notebooks!”  Guess what?  Here’s the project! It’s your license to stock up!

This is a super-simple DIY craft project that takes hardly any time at all.  This was a sample notebook that I did with the kids this summer at Summer Scrap Camp, using the Truly Grateful stamp set (131733).

Easy DIY Recycled Notebook Craft

  1. Cut card stock to cover the front of your notebook
  2. Dab coordinating acrylic paint on the parts of the notebook that will show beyond your card stock. Or just select a notebook that matches your project colors.
  3. Select scrapbook paper scraps to set your color palette. Use rubber stamps and coordinating colors of ink to stamp the background paper.
  4. Cut scrapbook paper strips into banner pieces and adhere to card stock.
  5. Accent with more stamped elements in coordinating colors and adhere to your notebook.

Like I said, it’s a super-simple project that you can complete in about 20-30 minutes.  These make great gift idea, too, for teachers or just about anyone.

They’re wonderful as Thankful Journals, or elementary school art projects.  When my daughter was in 1st grade, I helped her class make writing journals.

I have loads of DIY notebook craft ideas on my blog, if you’re looking for more inspiration.

Happy Stamping!
