We’re big comic book fans in the Organized 31 family, but Captain America is my favorite. Is it because I was a captain (although, not a supersoldier) at one time? Is it because he has America in his name? Or is it because of Chris Evans? (just joking… or am I?) Whatever the reason, it only took me 5 minutes to whip up this diy Captain America Notebook.
It really only took about 5 minutes (plus drying time) to make this notebook for
myself my son. I already had everything I needed. Whenever I see small notebooks on sale, I grab a bunch and save them for a project just like this. So all I had to do was pull out the notebook, Mod Podge , a brush and the paper-cutter. My daughter had given my son a Captain America postcard so I copied it onto card stock by scanning it on the printer. That gave me the image I wanted for the cover.
I scanned the postcard on the wrong side of the paper. Ugh. I hate to waste anything, so I just cut the paper, covered the back of the notebook first and then added the front cover. If you’re smarter than I am, you can print the photo on the right side of the paper and then you’ll only have to Mod Podge one piece of paper down after you trim it to fit your notebook. But even adding an extra step didn’t raise the difficulty level of this project above super easy. I find it easier to brush the Mod Podge on the notebook and then position the paper rather than the other way around.
I think these would make great party favors for a superhero party or great stocking stuffers or great advent calendar gifts or great Easter basket stuffers or… (am I just making up excuses to make more of these?)
