Know someone going off to college? or are you going yourself? This can be a really scary time in a a person’s life. But you can show them that you are thinking about them and make them a cute little notebook to take along with them. Make it personalized using NCAA Stamps from Clearsnap! They have a ton of colleges to choose from!
Here is what you will need to make one at home:
- a plain composition book
- white card stock
- red ribbon
- University of Georgia Stamp Set from Clearsnap
- University of Georgia Dye Inkpads
- University of Georgia Inking Stamp Set from Clearsnap
The first thing you will want to do is to cover the composition book with white card stock. Measure it to make sure it is the right size and adhere it down with some glue!
On a separate sheet of card stock, roll out the self-inking stamp a few times. Pick the best result to use on your notebook.
Glue the strip along the edge of notebook. How cool is it that you can make a notebook with your exact college logo so easily? It still amazes me!
To cover the edge of the strip of paper, add a ribbon around the cover of the notebook and tie it in a not. To make it look more like a bow than a knot, cut the edges on an angle. If the notebook is for a guy, you may want to avoid the bow and simply glue down the ribbon.
Not its time to go Bulldog Crazy! Arrange the stamps where ever you want on the notebook. I liked them best going up the right side, but you can place them in lots of other places as well, and stamp the same one multiple times if you choose.
Stamp Stamp Stamp! Ink them up using the University of Georgia dye inkpads or the ones that coordinate with your college. When stamping make sure to press down all over the image lightly for the best results.
And there you have it! A DIY notebook decked out in your school’s logo and colors! This notebook would make a great “good luck at college” gift for friends or family members. Or you could make a bunch and sell them to your friends at school!
