By now you’re probably heading back to the classroom and prepping for a year of learning. It’s such an exciting time — you’ve decked out your locker, selected a brand new backpack, and are catching up with old pals. And here at The Stylehouse we think back to school is even more exciting when you can customize and decorate your school supplies to fit your own style. To help you personalize your gear we’ve teamed up with DIY extraordinaire, Amy of Homey Oh My! blog to create these darling little notebooks! Go ahead and kick off the new school year with these cute, decorated notebooks and easy DIY labels, here’s how…
- Foam brush
- Mod Podge
- Washi tape
Step 1: Trace the notebook cover onto the backside of your paper. If you are using a spiral notebook, make sure the paper is lined up with the edges of the little holes.
Step 2: Using a foam brush, apply a thin layer of Mod Podge all over the notebook cover.
Step 3: Line up the corner of the paper with the corner of the notebook, then smooth the rest of the paper over the cover for adhesion.
Step 4: Wrap the Washi tape over the top edge of the notebook and stick it down over the cover.
Step 5: You can cut the Washi tape straight, or into a cute flag shape like this!
Step 6: Use a thin Sharpie to write your notebook subject on the Washi tape.
Get creative with the paper and tape designs you use and make a combination that’s uniquely you! Looking for more? Be sure to head over to Homey Oh My! to see more of Amy’s adorable DIY’s and How To’s!
