✂️📓❤️DIY Chalkboard Notebooks! College Girl Edition✂️📓❤️

Happy Saturday Lovelies!!

I am blown away at how fast the weeks go by here at West Coast feels like just yesterday that it was Monday and I was flooded with assignments!

Thankfully by the grace of God I was able to turn them all in on time, but looking at my due list (aka the ”torture list” lol) this week I’m going to be needing grace this week as well!

Whenever I am feeling slightly overwhelmed I take some time to turn on some Disney music and get crafting! It’s quite therapeutic believe it or not lol!

So out of my stress; came about this DIY ! Isn’t it lovely how that works out? 😀 lol

Recently I have been OBSESSED with cute inspirational quote books to write sermon notes, devotionals, personal thoughts and random doodles! However sometimes those little $4-6 books can add up (especially when you buy all of them! #guilty ) So instead I decided on making my own! Plus you are able to customize them with your favorite quotes!

So let’s get started!

For this project you will need:

  • Composition books (88 cents at Walmart)
  • Chalkboard Paint ($5 also at Walmart or Michael’s)
  • Chalkboard Pens or Regular Chalk ($9 for 4 pens/ $2 for individual pens/ or 50 cents for a pack of regular chalk)
  • Sponge Brushes (99 cents for a pack of 4)

Step 1: Paint 2 coats onto the notebook surface with your chalkboard paint!

Honestly you can realistically get away with one coat but for a neater, cleaner look I would go ahead and do 2 coats!

Step 2:  Allow it to dry for at least 10-15 minutes per coat!

The best part about chalkboard paint is that it dries ridiculously fast! In about 10-15 minutes the first coat was all dry and ready to be drawn on!

Step 3: DECORATE! 

And the final step is to decorate and use your creativity at this point! You can have fun with all different colors of chalkboard pens/chalk!

I highly would recommend investing in chalkboard pens rather than using regular sidewalk chalk. They will definitely give that ”script” type font to your designs!

I probably enjoyed this little DIY waayy more than I should have! It is definitely addicting! After the first couple of notebooks I completed, I went ahead and purchased a few more to have fun with! They make great, inexpensive, and not to mention personalized gifts for your teachers, room mates, friends and family! Don’t forget to mention inside or on a note when giving them away that it was ”Handmade with Love!”

They are sure to love them! Here’s one I made for my friend Rochelle’s birthday! They make the best gift basket fillers! Another idea is to make a ”Be Still ” themed Gift Basket

based off of my personal favorite life verse in Psalm 46:10 ”Be Still and Know that I am God.” You can add a cute coffee mug, with your gift recipient’s fav tea/coffee, cozy blanket, face mask, EOS lip balm, and anything that will allow your friend to just ”Be Still’ and relax for a moment!

So here is the total DIY project breakdown cost!

Total Cost:

Composition Book= 88 cents (Walmart)

Chalkboard Paint= $4.74 (Walmart)

*Many craft stores have them now for much cheaper as low as $2 at JoAnns and Michaels!

Pack of 4 sponge brushes= $1 (Walmart or Dollar Tree)

Chalkboard Pen= $3 for a single one/ or $9 for a pack of 4 *your choice*

Total cost=$9.62 *if only a single chalkboard pen purchased

$15.62 *if you purchase the 4-pack of chalkboard pens

Great value and you can use the chalkboard paint for another project!

Below I have attached some ideas to decorate your notebooks! Looking at Pinterest for cute verse typography really helped! Enjoy!
