Can you guess the size of this diary? I bet you can easily but only if you have checked my previous article of Clay Pink Ribbon Bow on Chevron Mug where you can see this small diary placed with a coffee mug storage container, That’s pretty small but looks cute!

I were at a book stationary store where I saw a very small diary, I was not in need of diary these days as I have collected many with time & also have got some as gift. But when I saw colorful pages inside, I thought I should have this diary for making random doodles and designs on it. As it’s very small so I can carry this in my clutch any time! Voila..
So I got it. Price of this diary is half dollar only! Cool ? Let’s decorate it now!

You will need to gather these supplies for designing this small diary!

Podgeable paper, or scrapbook paper

Mod Podge glue

Scissor & sandpaper stick

And of course a diary :)

First I cut some vintage inspired motifs from the podgables collection book. This sparrow was exactly according to the size of my small diary, So I cut it along with some other motifs & a quote too! A cage as well as some leafs! Have a look..

How to decoupage diary cover :

First you will need to use sand paper on the surface of diary cover, make it dull so glue will be able to stuck with paper nicely!
Then apply a coat of mod podge glue & start fixing motifs on the surface cover.
Let it dry for a few minutes & then you can coat the surface again ( I didn’t coat though )
I like the dull look more than a shiny one! So I didn’t coat it in the last.
If you are going to coat it, be sure to use sand paper so it will not be sticking together with anything!

I dedicate this craft for the pink ribbon bow campaign. So here I put some messages for those who are fighting against breast cancer or any other disease. Life is a Journey! So don’t stop Dreaming! Stay calm & peaceful & LOVE yourself first, then love everything.. Keep this message in your mind & be sure to stay positive! Be optimistic.. EVERYTHING WILL BE OKAY!! Believe me.. So I would be more than happy if you will be considering this message during your down time!
