These Hand Lettered Mini Notebooks are the perfect little DIY gift to keep on hand for when a friend or family member needs a little pick me up!
I am a BIG fan of handmade gift giving. I am also a big fan of sending little gifts to friends and family. There is just something almost magical about getting a little surprise package in the mail. I love creating fun and unique things when I have the time, then I keep them on hand to add to a gift basket or pop in the mail.
These little Hand Lettered Mini Notebooks are a quick and easy project, and only require a few supplies!
Gold Leaf Pen
Step #1. Slap a little chalkboard paint on the cover of the notebooks. I wanted a brushstroke effect, and dragged an almost dry brush along the edges. And added more paint to my brush for center section so that the lettering would stand out. Let the notebooks dry completely.
Step #2. (Optional) Using your favorite lettering font, create a template for the “hand lettering”. I used my favorite font and picmonkey. Print these off in the size you need. Color the back of the page with white chalk. Then place the paper over the notebook and trace the lettering with a pen, pressing firmly. This will transfer a chalk outline to your notebook cover.
Step #3. Using your gold leaf pen, add your lettered phrase. I did phrases like “take note”, “ideas”, “notewothy”, “shit to do”, etc. If you used step 2 to create a chalk template, use the gold leaf pen to fill it in and create the hand lettering effect. Allow to dry completely.
So easy right?? I told ya!
And they’re such a great little gift-able to keep on hand! The options for what you letter on these is pretty much endless! Personalize with a name or try drawing a logo! The beauty of these is you can get as creative as you want 🙂
