Somehow this summer just flew buy and it is nearly time to start thinking about back to school already. If your little girl has an American Girl for a best friend she would love some mini sized notebooks for her doll to get ready to hit the books too! With just some common craft supplies on hand you can whip up a dozen in minutes to delight her, or make them together for some sweet quality time. Grab some supplies and create some back to school supplies for your American Girl Doll!
American Girl Accessories: Notebooks
patterned scrapbook paper
Measure and cut about 10 pieces of notebook paper and 2 pieces of scrapbook paper to 3″x 2 1/2″.
Slide notebook paper between patterned paper so that both patterned sides are facing outward. Staple 2-3 times as close to edge as possible.
Cut a piece of washi tape the same length as your book. Place it so that half overlaps the front and fold the other half over to cover the staples in back.
Now you can add additional stickers to create your dolls monogram or highlight their favorite activities.
That’s it, how cute are these little notebooks tucked in a mini backpack for your doll ready to head to school? My daughter is having a ball with her notebooks and her doll has nearly filled them with her “notes”.
With just a couple dollars worth of supplies you can create quite a variety of pretty notebooks.
