MY DIY | New Year Notebook



I have been decluttering my spaces like crazy, but the one thing I can’t help but collect is notebooks! They are perfect for gathering my thoughts, jotting down DIY ideas, and keeping track of all my plans in the new year. I thought 2016 could use a few shiny silver ones with motivational messages on, so I don’t lose track of them or my goals.  Bonus: they are super simple to make! Start by gathering these stickers and these notebooks. Next up, brainstorm up a custom message, they lay it out on a piece of paper to get the correct spacing, next transfer over to the top of your notebook. A couple tips: Add a little dab of glue to the back of each sticker so they are permanent,  and use a ruler so all the letters line up and look perfect. What’s your 2016 mantra?
