How to a  Simple Watercolor Notebook COVER:
I first, took a plain sheet of watercolor paper and lightly drew a diamond pattern on it.  Then, I slowly started filling in the diamonds with my watercolor.  Once, the watercolor was dry I was able to erase the pencil marks.

Note: If you aren’t into watercolors, another option for the cover would be your favorite scrapbook paper.

How to the  Simple Watercolor Notebook:
First, I took five or six sheets of lined copy paper and folded them in half.  I had already cut the sheets down, so when folded they would be a perfect long skinny notebook size.

Then, I laid out the lined paper onto my chipboard sheet and cut it to size, too.  Folding chipboard is a little harder, so I used a straight edge ruler, but really anything hard will work to help fold the sheet.

Next was cutting down the watercolor sheet.  I laid the sheet down and traced my chipboard overtop to create the pretty top cover.

And finally, I mod podged the watercolor sheet and chipboard together.  Once that had
completely dried, I laid open the cover, added the lined paper sheets and with two simple
staples, it was done!

  1. I’m so into lists, it has sorta become a problem, but if I had this beautiful little notebook they would all be in one spot! I was goofing off with my daughter’s watercolors today after seeing this the other day and I may just have to try it for real! Beautiful!

  2. I’m terrible at lists, I frequently leave my grocery list at home… oops. This is an excellent idea! I should make one to put in my purse, you know, so I can have my lists with me at all times!

    I’m a fan of watercolor, that’s what drew me here, it’s beautiful but easy.
