While it’s a few days away from Christmas, I’ve been thinking the New year and all that comes with him. I know don’t why, but I have the urge to organize and update everything hits at once, the New year, and this DIY journal is perfect for recording your goals, decisions about the thoughts on the coming year!

Check out how easy it was, a diary.
Supplies:

Notebook
Patterned Cardstock
Vinyl letters or stickers
Matt Mod hotchpotch
Brayer
sponge paint brush
X-Acto knife
brass leaf
parchment paper or wax paper

step 1. Select your notebook and the patterned box you want to cover it with – I still love the rustic look, so I went for a fun, white washed wood design (P. S. I got them from Michaels in the Christmas-paper-course!).
step 2. Apply a generous amount of Mod smorgasbord on the front of the notebook so that the pages are not always decoupaged by sandwiching a piece of parchment paper or wax paper between the title page and the first page.
step 3. Apply your patterned cardstock of choice, and use a brayer to push out excess Mod smorgasbord and put the cover flat on the cardboard. After drying, trim the excess and repeat steps 2 and 3 on the other side of the computer.
step 4. Make your notebook look glamorous by painting the spine (mine is flipped an orange color) with some brass. I used a flat brush to distribute the color evenly – and about two layers of it. Drying in between layers.
step 5. Are you looking for a to say! I used a quote I found on the Silhouette store, because the don’, it was very fitting for the New year;t you think so?
I cut my mirror gold vinyl, but you can peel in any case, buying images to use on Etsy or even create them on your own using vinyl stickers (so that you don’t have an electronic die-cutter in this case).
And you're done! The entire process takes less than an hour, and it’s a fun activity not only on their own, but with your friends as well. What are your rituals for the New year? You can create a journal?
