Whether you have kids heading back to school or not, I have a super easy project for you today! As you all know, I have a love affair with paper and when I saw these inexpensive paper notebooks at Ikea a while ago, I snatched a few up. Today I am showing how to create these Simple Painted Notebooks!
Acrylic Paint of your choosing
*Simple Paper Notebook
First, select the paint for your pages. Squeeze the pages together tightly as you paint to ensure paint does not seep beyond the edge. Also be careful to not get any paint on the front or back cover of your notebook.
After you complete painting the paper edges, slightly fan out so pages can dry indivisually. If you allow the notebook to dry closed, the pages may become stuck together.
Next, I painted the elastic banding on my *notebook. I did two coats of paint on the banding and allowed to dry in between.
I love that I was able to take a $0.99 Ikea notebook and transform it to something bright and colorful!
It’s the perfect Back to School project or if you are paper crazed like me, a perfect anytime project!
