Introduction: DIY Glitter Notebooks
These notebooks are sparkly, stylish and easy to create. They will add a little shine to your day and make a great personalised gift! The materials required for this DIY are mainly household items so you do not need to spend a fortune purchasing new materials.
Step 1: Avoid Using Glitter Inside!
Be warned, glitter is very hard to remove from surfaces so I highly recommend completing this DIY outside unless you want sparkling floorboards!
Step 2: Gather Your Supplies
- masking tape
- white paint or white contact paper
- clear contact paper
Step 3: Cover Your Notebook
Cover your notebook with white paint or contact paper.
Step 4: Create a Pattern
Once the paint has dried (or book has been covered in white contact), start placing your tape on the front cover to create your desired pattern. I am creating an abstract pattern by placing my tape on the book at different angles!
Step 5: Cover in Glue
Paint the front cover with a layer of glue. It does not matter if you paint the tape because you will remove it later (I chose not to!).
Step 6: Cover in Glitter
Evenly spread the glitter onto the front cover, making sure you do not leave any gaps. I am using gold glitter but you can use any colour/s!
Step 7: Remove the Tape
Once the glue has dried, shake off any excess glitter and peel off the tape!
Step 8: Protect Your Notebook
To protect your notebook from sprinkling glitter everywhere, carefully cover your notebook in clear contact!
Step 9: Enjoy!
