Introduction: DIY Glitter Notebooks

Picture of 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

- notebook
- glitter
- glue
- 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!
