We all know someone that enjoys showing their creative side. A DIY decorated notebook is the perfect gift for any aspiring writer, journalist, or artist. Here is a creative way to customize a notebook to fit someone’s unique style.

You will need:

-plain notebook

-images (from a magazine or printed out from online)

-liquid glue

-scissors

-triangle stencil

Let’s get started:

Step 1: Collect your desired images. The images can be a variety of things that the receiver likes or things that remind you of them

Step 2: Trace over the images with the triangle stencil, then cut them out

Step 3: Glue the triangles down. Place them so that they all fit together well. (one right side up and one inverted)

Step 4: Cover the images in a thin, even layer of glue so that the images stay put and do not peel off

Give a gift that shows a creative side with a notebook that’s personalized for anyone’s individual style.
