DIY Stationary - Color Blocked Notebooks

Splitting ways with your best gal pals for a summer internship or vacation abroad? Look no further for a great going-away gift!


Jot down some quick notes, or sketch at your favorite museum in a color blocked notepad that you can personalize for yourself or gift to your best friend.


Add a touch of chic to boring summer classes - Here's an easy way to transition your favorite color blocking trend from your closet to your backpack!



What you'll need-



- Notebook
- Acrylic paint, magic marker, or coloring option of your choice that will adhere to the notebook's material (or you can use colored duct tape!)
- Masking Tape
- Paint brush
- A large piece of paper


Step 1 - Tape off the section that you would like to color block and press firmly. This will give you a clean line.


Step 2 - Completely color in the area with a few coats of paint.


Step 3 - Carefully tear off the tape before the paint drys and let sit until completely dry.
