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!
What supplies do I need to make a DIY Watercolor notebook?
How to make a notebook using a watercolor cover:
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.
Next, 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.
Then, it’s time to cut down the watercolor cover sheet. I laid the sheet down and traced my chipboard overtop to create the pretty top.
Add a few staples along the center seam to keep everything in place.
This is a perfect notebook to keep in your purse for those random lists that come to you while out and about running errands!
I’m using mine for a Summer to do list with my two kiddos before school starts up again.
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??
