Notebook decoration ideas:

I have these cute mini notebooks today that are surprisingly easy to make. Check out my blog post- How to make a book at home to see how you can make these notebooks at home yourself!

By the way, how cute are those colors? Today I am just having fun and decorating these notebook covers. I pulled out my TwinTone markers and die-cut these cute labels with a faux stitched edge using the Lawn fawn Outside in Stitched Rectangle Stackables set.

I doodled a bunch of designs and then added the label on top.

To create this set of typography inspired notebooks I had fun die cutting these fun block font alphabets using the Lawn Fawn Cole’s ABC dies. I love all things lettering and these alphabets are such a great basic block font. I am sure I will be reaching for this die over and over again!

For the Notes book, I doodles a bunch of flowers with the MONO drawing pen. Yes, I drew flowers again as always.


All in all I decorated a set of 6 notebooks today and each one of them make me smile. I think these notebook decoration ideas are all simple and doable, but let me know what you think. Also, what would you use these notebooks for? Me, I’m the kind of girl who always has a notebook and pen in her purse so these will be traveling in my purse. Also, my kids and husband have already claimed one book each for themselves!

  1. I love blog hops because I get inspired to create! I like the book with the alphabet on it.

  2. These journals are great. hate to pick but I think I like the white floral the best. Gives you a chance to add your own color.

  3. I make notebooks for my granddaughters but never thought to doodle on the cover. Thanks for the inspiration.
