It’s a little depressing for me when I see all the back to school supplies out since it’s a sad reminder that there will be an end to summer. But, I’ve decided to get a head start on the school supply shopping this year instead of waiting until the last minute which is what I usually do.
I was at Walmart over the weekend and picked up a few supplies. Then, Connor and I found some awesome superhero scrapbook paper and I thought it would be fun to make Connor some cool superhero notebooks for school.
- composition books
- scrapbook paper
- mod podge
- paint brush
Step 1: Cut scrapbook paper down to cover notebook. I left about an inch of paper around to make sure it covered the notebook completely.
Step 2: Apply mod podge to notebook cover and back side of scrapbook paper.
Step 3: Place scrapbook paper on notebook. Smooth out to make sure it is even and there are no bubbles.
Step 4: Apply a layer of mod podge over scrapbook paper and let dry.
Step 5: Once dry, trim extra scrapbook from notebook and admire your cool new notebooks.
That’s it! 5 supplies needed and only 5 easy steps to make custom notebooks.
And while I was shopping at Walmart, I had a few essentials I needed to pick up – toilet paper and Kleenex. Then I realized that I could also get a head start on collecting box tops for Connor’s school. Definitely a win-win!
It’s time to conquer Back to School shopping and get started on collecting Box Tops; all while restocking your home with household paper essentials.
