When it came time to think of Easter crafts this year, I knew I wanted to do something with my stash of craft foam. When I found a pile of composition notebooks I bought for cheap back in the fall, I decided that an Easter-egg-inspired notebook was in order. I’m giving it to my friend’s son as a gift, so I added his name to the front cover as well!
- Craft foam, on hand or $1 and up
- Composition book, $1
- Foam letter stickers, $1
- Glue, on hand
- Edging scissors, on hand
Total: $2 and up
Choose craft foam in a variety of springy, bright colors. I had lots to choose from – I always buy more than I need every time I use it for a project and somehow I’ve amassed quite a stack!
Trace the covers of the notebook onto two sheets of craft foam in the same color.
Cut the foam pieces out and glue them to the front and back of the notebook.
Use scrapbook edging scissors in various patterns to cut stripes of foam on other colors. Cut two of each color so you can make matching stripes on the front and back. I also cut one strip with straight edges that I used for adding a name.
Glue the stripes to the covers and trim any excess foam around the edges as needed.
As an optional final touch, use foam stickers to add the recipient’s name or the sentiment of your choice to the front cover.
