DIY Owl Notebook

Remember that owl birthday card I got from Jenny? It was so cute I wanted to use it somehow, and when I picked up a new five subject notebook for Uni the other day, I knew that card would come in handy. With the rain pouring down outside yet again today, I devoted some time to my little DIY idea.

Here’s what I used: a notebook, a pretty card, self adhesive plastic wrap, glue, and craft paper.

I started by carefully cutting out all the owls and small golden leaves from the card.

Then I chose some pretty craft paper and assembled it with the owls and golden leaves on the cover before gluing everything in place.

Once everything was glued on to the cover, I cut an appropriate sized sheet of self adhesive plastic wrap and carefully fastened it to the cover. I usually use a ruler to avoid any air bubbles getting in under the plastic wrap.

Finally, I added a tag to the first page of the notebook so I can mark it with my name and number.

And done! This cover sure beats that original blue cover.

    Oh I love it! I’ve been looking for clear plastic wrap for AGES (I wanna wrap my books that I read in it) but can’t find it anywhere! This post has made me more motivated to find it though!
