Hey guys! Today, in the back-to-school spirit, I wanted to show ya’ll some really pretty back-to-school notebooks that I definatly think you should try.
If you guys remember last year, my back-to-school diy note books (link here https://marielle01blog.wordpress.com/2015/09/06/bts-crafty-craze/ ), these are similar, but in my opinion, much better! Here are the steps to these lacey notebooks.
1.Gather the supplies
The supplies you’ll need will be a notebook, spray paint (colors of your choice), lace, tape, and newspapers or something that you can spray onto.
2. Spray paint the cover and let it dry.
Take your notebook and stick newspaper in between the cover and the rest of the pages. That way your pages won’t get paint on them. As shown, I also stuck tape on the side of my notebook down the black binding/edge. That way, when all the spray paint is on and dried, you can just take the tape off and then have a black edge. When you are all set, spray paint your cover with the base color, I chose purple. Let that dry.
3. Tape on the lace.
Once your base color is dry, tape the lace over top. Taping on the lace is pretty important because you want to make sure that the lace is tight and wont move around.
4. Spray paint the lace and let it dry.
Once you have the lace as you want it, spray paint the lace with your second color, mine is silver. Let this dry now.
5. Carefully take off the lace and enjoy!
Once the paint is dry, carefully take off the lace. You are left with this beautiful, lacy design, painted on the cover of your notebook!
As you can see, I did a red as well as a purple one, and I took off the tape so I have a black edge. The reason why I like these better than the notebooks I did last year, is because these are all paint. You don’t have to worry about paper or in this case lace coming off, it is all painted on!
I hope ya’ll liked this project as much as I did! It gives me a happy feeling when I use these diy notebooks because they are so pretty and because you are like, ‘hey, I made this!’ Comment below if you tried this project and how it went for you!
