DIY: Photo Shake Notebooks
|Extra photos for bloggers: 1, 2, 3|
This is the year you get organized. You’re gonna need a notebook for to-do’s and goal lists.
But not just any ol’ notebook … a fun photo notebook with pix on the cover that move when you shake ’em!
Keep organized and show off your happy snaps at the same time by giving any notebook a makeover using photos, confetti and a bit of cellophane.
Say no to boring this year and shake things up with a fun new notebook covered in photos (that move around).
WHY IT’S COOL
Not only do Photo Shake Notebooks combine your love of photography and staying organized. They make awesome DIY gifts for friends, are a cool way to display snaps and can be themed as easy as pie. Well, as easy as picking photos of pie for a recipe journal.

STEP 3: Now the other sides
You can now fold over the horizontal sides of the paper to wrap around your notebook. Tape them down.
STEP 4: Wrap
STEP 5: Cello Time
Oh, and don’t worry too much about how messy it may look on the inside. We’ll fix this up in just a tick.
STEP 6: Fill
STEP 7: Close it up
STEP 8: Finish
Finish off the insides of your notebook by using double sided tape to stick a piece of card stock down on the inside panel of the notebook. This will prevent any bits from coming undone and cover up the messy-ness.
