So I have a confession to make. I miss school.
No I am not going crazy & no I don’t miss homework & spending hours listening to lectures. I do however miss the constant stream of learning & even more so I miss having an excuse to buy fun new school supplies each year.
I LOVE school supplies!
So much so that I found myself in Target the other day just browsing through all of their cute back to school items.
I even found a super cute silver sparkly planner (which I will show you tonight on Periscope – @blissfulmiller – when I give you an unclose look at this DIY Glitter Composition Notebook) that I had to have for myself! I then of course needed a matching glittery composition notebook, but I didn’t see any. But even if I had I probably wouldn’t have spent the 3-5 dollars it would have cost. Why buy what I can make?
Luckily I already had everything I needed at home, including a cheap standard black & white composition!
The best part is I made it myself & that you can customize yours to whatever color or colors you like best!
Oh & did I mention the glitter doesn’t come off?!?!
Paint Brush (for glue)
1. First, apply a layer of Mod Podge to the top of your notebook then sprinkle on a think layer of glitter.
Note: If you want both the front & back of your composition to be glittery simply open the notebook up (outside up with the paper facing the table) & you can do both sides at once.
2. Let the glue & glitter dry for 10-15 minutes then shake off the excess glitter onto your newspaper & funnel the glitter back into it’s original container.
3. Apply a second layer of Mod Podge (a little thicker this time) onto the glittery composition notebook & then sprinkle on a second thick layer of glitter.
4. Repeat step #2.
5. Finally, apply a thick layer of Mod Podge to the glitter & let dry. I let mine dry overnight to ensure I didn’t mess it up by touching it too soon.
Now all that’s left is to wait for the school year to begin so you can show off your new Glitter Composition Notebook!
