3 DIY Lisa Frank Notebooks
It's August, It's back-to-school season, and I am obsessed with Lisa Frank! No, really! I'm a 90's kid, and I grew up having all the Lisa Frank supplies!
I had notebooks, stickers, folders, binders, pencils, coloring books, etc. Lisa Frank seems to be making a comeback these days and I could not be happier about it. I'm thrilled to be reliving my childhood with neon cheetah print.
I decided that this year I wanted to restyle all of my school supplies inspired by Lisa Frank. And because I'm cool, I'm also sharing tutorials so that you too can enjoy my 90's kid nostalgia.
Space Unicorn Notebook:
1. Grab your Lisa Frank coloring book and favorite coloring supplies!
2. Color your space unicorn whatever colors you like, but remember that Lisa Frank is always bold, bright colors!
3. Use an adhesive runner to glue the coloring page to the front of the notebook!
Hunter Cheetah Notebook:
1. Print out a gradient pattern and use an adhesive runner to adhere it to the front of your notebook.
You can download the gradient I designed HERE.
2. Cut Hunter (The Cheetah!) out of a coloring page and adhere him onto the front of the notebook.
Foil Unicorn Notebook:
(This last notebook uses the Heidi Swapp Minc to create a shiny foiled design! If you don't have a minc, try using Therm-O-Web's Foil Adhesive to trace the coloring page!)
2. Cover the coloring page design with rainbow transfer foil pieces and run through the Minc (or if you're using Deco Foil Adhesive, follow the manufacturers directions!)
3. Remove the transfer foil and use an adhesive runner to adhere the now shiny coloring page to the front of the notebook.
BTW, the coloring book I used in these projects, I got for only $1 at the Dollar Tree! Score!
Did you collect/hoard/love Lisa Frank as a kid too? Be on the lookout for more Lisa Frank projects!
