Personalized Notebook

Trouble loves the comic book character Wolverine. Why? I have no idea, but... Trouble now want's to be a Mutant Super Hero when he grows up. Sounds dangerous like fun! Trouble asked for a Wolverine notebook so he could write stories about his favorite super hero. I have no interest in tracking down a Wolverine notebook so I knew I was going to have to make one.

I pulled out the Modge Podge, a paintbrush, some pictures of Wolverine (from a coloring book) and a spiral notebook.

Next I brushed a layer of Modge Podge over the front of the notebook.

Then laid the pictures of Wolverine in the Modge Podge.

I brushed a layer of Modge Podge over the new cover of the notebook and let it dry.


Trouble was thrilled to see this new notebook.

I was thrilled to see him using his new notebook.

This project can be done with whatever pictures, photographs, scrapbook paper etc... you like.



  1. this is a great idea! no more searching for a particular notebook!


  2. Ha! Great work! If you could have found one in the shop -it probably would've cost you 5 times as much anyway!
