Introduction: Candy Composition Notebook

About: I am a conceptual artist, and my DIY projects are mostly inspired by pop culture (movies, music, sports, TV). I mostly specialize in painting, graphic design, drawing, digital photography, performance art, and…

Grab a regular composition notebook and turn it into a deliciously fun candy-themed masterpiece that would make a great colorful statement for back to school!

Step 1: Materials List

Here's what you will need to make it:

  • a composition notebook
  • a printable of your favorite candy label
  • Mod Podge
  • large paint brush or foam brush
  • scissors or X-acto knife
  • pencil

Step 2: Prep Image

First, research and print out a copy of your favorite candy label. I chose Skittles, because I just love the rainbow colors!

Step 3: Prep Image Part 2

Lay the printable facedown on your work surface, and place the front cover of the composition notebook on top of it. Then, use your pencil to trace around the cover. Once you've done that, cut out the image.

Step 4: Add Image

Brush on a layer of Mod Podge, and place the image on top of the cover. Then, add more Mod Podge on top of that to seal. Let dry completely. Then, once dry completely, cut away any excess paper that might hang out along the edge.

Step 5: Done!

This colorful, delicious idea is great for gifts and for back to school! Again, I chose Skittles, just because I love the rainbow colors throughout the design. However, you can also choose other candy labels, like M&M's, Reese's, and even Hershey's.
