This is a super easy and quick diy to pimp up your boring notebooks. I got my notebook from Ikea, the size is 21x15 cm and it was super cheap.
Other than a notebook you will need:
- computer, printer
- acrylic paint (in whichever housecolors you like)
- Paint brushes
- Glue stick
- Some kind of paper/washi tape that can be removed from the notebook without leaving marks
Step 1: Step 1: Print, Cut, Tape
First thing you're going to need to do is pick a hogwarts house, (I chose Ravenclaw), search the internet for a house crest picture of your chosen house and print it, make sure to resize it so it will fit on your notebook. (Mine is about 5x6 cm). Next thing to do is cut out your house crest and just place it where you want it on your notebook (don't glue it on yet).
Now, grab your tape, depending on how thick you want your lines to be you might need to cut the tape. My tape was about 1 cm wide and I cut it in half to make the lines thinner. Create whichever pattern you want with the tape and make sure to leave space for your housecrest wherever you place it.
Step 2: Step 2: Time to Paint
Get your paint and brsuhes out, it's time to put some color on this notebook.
Fill in the spaces in your pattern with your chosen housecolors. I noticed in this step I needed to paint the blue bits twice, you might need to do this in order to make the color look good.
Step 3: Step 3: Finishing Touches
Remove the tape as soon as you're done painting, don't let the paint dry first. Once you've removed the tape it's time to glue on your housecrest that you've already cut out. Let it all dry for a little while and your new Harry Potter themed notebook is ready to be used. Note that I did this one on the same notebook as I did my Hufflepuff one, but it turned out pretty cool after all to have two different houses on one notebook. :)
