Simple watercolor Notebook.
Hello again, lovely NoBiggie readers! It’s Amy from Delineate Your Dwelling with a simple Watercolor Notebook how-to. I’m a huge list maker. I adore paper and always have a handful of notebooks on hand to keep those lists under control and this one was so fun to put together!
Watercolor Paper + watercolor paint set
Object for folding
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 color. 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.
1. First, I took five or six sheets of lined 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.
2. Then, I laid out the lined paper onto my chipboard sheet and cut it to size. Folding chipboard is a little harder, so I used this adorable ruler I bought a few months ago, but really anything hard will work to help fold the sheet.
3. Next was cutting down the watercolor sheet. I laid the sheet down and traced my chipboard overtop to create the pretty top cover.
4. And finally, I mod-podged the watercolor sheet and chipboard together. Once that had 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.
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!
