Hey girl hey. And boy.
So if you know me and my past DIY’s, you’d know that I literally cannot come up with anything creative whatsoever. I mean, last year I painted lines, stuck some tape on it and called it a day. I was searching through Youtube for things I can do this year but then I thought of a WordPress search instead and today, we’ll be testing out their notebook covers!
This is the last post in my Back to School Series and it’s been so much fun. I didn’t post consecutively this time so my dates extended all the way to the 8th instead of 4th but I’m glad I went on my own pace and had fun with it. Also, stay tuned until the end because I’ll be announcing a new posting schedule as I know one of you requested that on the survey AND giving a recap of this series (all the posts you might have missed from me as well as a thank you to all who participated) and if you wanted to do a back to school post with me for next year, definitely comment your dibs so I can contact you ahead of time.
Sooo without further ado, let’s get DIYing.
1. Sunflower Notebook by Morgan’s Marvelous Ideas
This idea is so so cute but I did the simpler version of it hehe. I will do a side by side of the different steps but definitely check out Mrorgan’s notebooks here (she makes 3 other ones!).
1. Cover your notebook pages with a bag and paint it a solid colour.
I switched it up with a cream colour and I was painting while tying water balloons. Let’s just say that it wasn’t a good idea.
2. Once dry, trace your sunflower design and go over it with paint
Okay so I personally hate paint and the long process it takes to dry so I went with an easy way out and used fabric marker instead. Hey, I did upgrade from last year so clap for me.
2. Photo Collage by Emma Limer
Emma’s DIY notebook post was too cute to pass down so I thought I’d recreate it with a little triangle twist.
1. Print out the photos you want to use (I just printed out a floral wallpaper)
2. Cut your paper to the size you want and overlay them like a collage (I just did triangles)
3. Tape them down and tada!
I went over mine with a little bit of white paint and now it looks ugly but it depends on the way you see it. If you see the flowers first, it’s decent. If you see the paint first (WHICH I ALWAYS DO), it’s not so decent.
Overall every blogger knows how to make DIY’s except me but keep your notebook shaming to yourselvesss. xD
Anddd that’s all for today.
Now it’s time for LE SCHEDULE:
