DIY STRIPED NOTEBOOK

This DIY is ridiculously easy and you could do a LOT of things with it. I plan on making one for Elliott with horses all over it as well as a gold one with a geometric pattern of sorts for me. The possibilities are endless! But for the most part, these directions should be sufficient for you to be able to make your own notebook, whether striped or not!
The all purposeful washi tape made it's appearance. What can't this tape do? I also used acrylic paints and mixed a few with white to get the exact shades I wanted. I got the notebooks in a local shop, but you can get similar ones here.
See? Super easy. And now, I have a fun notebook for my random thoughts, ideas and rants.

p.s. These would make great gifts!
