Handmade DIY Decoupage Notebook / Address Book / Journal
When my son and I were out school shopping over the weekend we stumbled across some mini composition books. At 4.5″ x 3.2″ I thought these would be perfect as small journals or address books. So I picked up a pack of two and my son and I gave these tiny notebooks a makeover.
Mini Composition Book Decoupage DIY
We started by cutting a piece of decorative scrapbook paper to fit the front cover. Then, using Mod Podge, we decoupaged it onto the front of the composition book. Next, I applied a strip of decorative Washi tape along the edge closest to the spine of my book, then applied another coat of Mod Podge over the paper and tape.

Finally we applied a scrapbook embellishment to the front cover. I also took a piece of ribbon and tied a bead to each end to use as a bookmark for my notebook. I plan to use my notebook as a journal.

DIY Address Book - DIY Decoupage Craft Project

My son chose to apply a small strip of Washi tape to the bottom right corner of his book. In addition to adding two scrapbook embellishments to his notebook, he also used Mod Podge to decoupage some ribbon onto his. I think his book is perfect to use as an address book.

This project is easy and fun. You can make your book as elaborate or as simple as you like. It’s also perfect as a weekend family project for both mom and the kids! What types of craft projects do you like to do with your children?
