    how to make a geometric notebook

    This black and white geometric notebook is such a simple project. From start to finish it took us about 15 minutes which included a string cheese snack break. Also, if you stare long enough at it in the center cross you’ll see a killer shark jumping out of the water catching a fish in the air under a full moon. Okay, not really. I could never do those stupid magic eye books. They drove me nuts.

    Okay, sorry. Sometimes I don’t know what to say about a project. Maybe just this: here’s something cute I made, keep on reading for instructions to make one yourself. That’s all. Oh, and happy If Pets Had Thumbs Day (totally legit holiday, check it out).

      Love it!
      Especially because the technique is reusable… one can do a dotted version or another geometric one!
      Great DIY!
