Hey everyone, How is Ramadan month going on? I hope everything is going great & perfect at yours end. Do you like keeping a little diary in your pocket or handbag? Oh sorry, This sounds old fashioned may be, Right? As we are living in a digital era where we like to depend on our gadgets. There are many people I know who save their important tasks in their phone apps or tablet/iPad notes section. After all it’s a smart world now, Who likes to search for a pen & a notebook for writing something important or saving anything useful. We all are mostly in short of time. By the way how do you manage your important tasks of everyday? Do you keep any planner or diary with you? As I am a craft stationary hoarder, So I have many notebooks & diaries. Today I will let you know an easy & quick way to design a pocket size diary. Let’s have a look.
How To Design A Pocket Size Diary
I am in a habit of collecting notebooks & planners. No matter how big or small it is. Even it’s cover is boring, I happily get it & decorate it. But there is a dilemma too, I don’t usually write inside the beautiful planners & diaries. I buy them & dump them otherwise gift them to my friends. Does it happen to you as well? I bet nobody is caring about stationary enough. haha. Anyways, I bought some teeny tiny diaries recently. I got 5 of these mini notebooks & thought to design their covers as the hard yet plain brown cover is great for decoupage & crafting. Let’s see how I have simply designed one of them.
As paper doilies are very soft & thin, So I am not using any water based glue here. I used this transparent glue which is quickly drying on any surface & not shrinking the paper doily with glue.
Then I applied a lace design washi tape at the bottom of diary.
By applying a paper doily, I hide the sign of the manufacturer. Oh well, It’s something written in Chinese language & we can’t understand it.
I have some thin paper floral washi tapes, some glitter washi tapes as well as shiny & rubber material lace designed washi tapes which I got via a collaboration Here.
As it’s the Holy month of Ramadan, So these kind of quick crafting DIYs can keep you busy during the long duration of fasts. Also it will connect you with something crafty fun!
I have another idea, What about getting some plain notebooks/diaries & then designing whenever you get time during this month. So before Eid when you will complete all of these, You can gift some of your designed notebooks to your family & friends along with an Eid card. Right? How about this idea? Also you can get some Card Making ideas for Eid.
