Decoupage Diary Cover

A few days back I decoupage this diary, but the oops thing here I would like to share is my blunder with Camera.. actually I format the card by mistake and tutorial pics for this diary decoupage disappear in a few seconds..how sad it is for a crafter? Did you ever feel this kind of trouble? well I take pics again for sharing with you.

Here it is an easy idea about decoupaging a leather diary. Its a new diary,but I was not feeling good with its brownish color.So I hide the color brown & make it girly now.

I did this within 15 minutes, a very easy & quick make over.. you should try this if you are tired of seeing your same/simple diary cover.diy decoupage cover

You will need to have a floral designed paper, foam brush, scissor, modpodge/glue, sand paper zero,

Process;

– First I measure the diary area where I want to paste the sheet. Then I cut the paper & paste over it.when it will get dry then simply mod podge it.

I did a second coat of modpodge but this time I apply MP sparkle for some blingy look..can you feel some shimmer here?

I make a bookmark too for this diary, you should use zero sand paper for making this diary smooth for holding in hand.

A few bad experiences while crafting are always useful for us in future, as I have missed my tutorial images but from now I will be more careful while working with camera touch system.

Let me know how you feel about my today’s post without step by step images..I hope you can to understand well without all steps because its a very simple and easy idea about decoupage.

Have a Nice Day!

    My girls have made bookmarks like this. I like the idea of creating a matching diary as it will encourage them to write.

    We have never done decoupage but my 9yr old daughter has just discovered art journalling and I think she would like this – thank you for sharing.

    I feel for you about the camera blunder, too. I recently lost a camera memory card containing photos of a wonderful science experiment I had just done with my kids. I found it 3 hours later in mud in the woods, amazingly. But during those 3 hours I was planning a new photoshoot!
