Altered Composition Book with Paint and Stencils

I have a fun project to share with you today: an altered composition book! The transformation – just using paint and stencils – is amazing, and takes this from a boring notebook to a stylish and pretty one. An altered composition book is a great gift for anyone going off to college! (And I have more gift ideas further down in this post!)

Think about this as a meaningful handmade gift idea too. These notebooks – once altered – turn into beautiful journals and blank books. Give them out to your bridesmaids, host a girl’s night in and make these together over a glass of wine and fun conversation, make a bunch for hostess gifts, or teacher appreciation gifts, or stocking stuffers – for a large stocking of course! These altered composition books also are a great craft idea for a tween or teen birthday party too, especially if it’s a sleepover as the books will be dry by the next morning!

So head on over to PinkWhen and get all the details in my contributor post there!

Happy crafting!

      Thanks so much Lisa! And I totally agree with you: this project doesn’t take nearly as long as some crafty DIYs do!
