I’m a huge list maker. I adore paper and always have a handful of notebooks on hand to keep those lists under control. Making this Simple Watercolor Notebook was so fun to put together!
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!
This is a perfect notebook to keep in your purse for those random lists that come to you while out and about!
I’m using mine for a Summer to do list with my two kiddos before school starts up. Yes, that’s right… kiddo #1 is heading off to pre-school two days a week and I’ll be a sobbing hot mess!
Are you a huge list person like me? If so, this is the perfect project for you to show off your personality while keeping organized!
Speaking of paper, I have a gorgeous hand lettered to-do list now available for purchase. Who said staying organized can’t be functional AND pretty??
