Customized Binder

By: Tanner Bell and Courtney Chambers from

Customized BinderYou have to carry your binder all day and it holds everything important for you to be successful this school year. Make sure that this important thing reflects who you are and what you love with this Customized Binder craft. You can cover it with all of the things you enjoy, and if it is still intact at the end of the year, you can save your custom binder to remember what you liked in middle or high school when you are older. Don't bother buying something from the store that only represents one thing you like. Get creative with this binder decorating idea and express yourself.

1. Flip through magazines and cut out any images that you see of your favorite things. You can also look for free images on the computer and print them out.

2. Cut out and arrange the images on your binder. Fill in empty spaces with smaller images or move the images around to avoid empty spaces.

3. After the images are arranged in a way that looks good to you, adhere them down with Mod Podge.

4. Go over the collage with a layer of Mod Podge to seal and protect the binder.

5. You can either leave it how it is at this point or you can add your name by finding the individual letters that make up your name in the magazine and Mod Podge them on the collage.
