Donut Craft Notebook: Make a Party of it!

Throwing a party for a bunch of middle school girls? I’m sharing an Easy Donut Craft tutorial today that the girls will love to make!

This is a simple Notebook Cover Idea that is both a paper craft and felt craft. I’ve previously made Unicorn Notebook Covers which were a hit with my kids and we wanted to try something new today.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED: For my party donut craft, I purchased a bunch of composition notebooks for the girls to alter the covers of. The rest of the supplies I already had at home- colorful cardstock, glue, scissors, felt sheets, and some puffy texture paints.

Step 1: Apply glue to the notebook cover front, and place a sheet of cardstock (in any color you want) onto the notebook aligning it straight along the spine. Then using a sharp pair of scissors, trim off the excess overhang of cardstock.

Step 2: Onto another sheet of cardstock trace or draw a circle shape. Cut out this circle shape with a sharp pair of scissors. Next, cut out the frosting shape from a sheet of craft felt. Fold and mark a smaller inner circle and cut it out.

This is the most fun part for the girls- picking and choosing paper colors, felt colors, and getting to cut and paste everything of their choice.

Step 4: To finish off our Party Donut Craft Notebooks, we attached a small white label to each notebook, somewhere the girls could write their name or subject.
