Today I’m going to show you how to take a plain binder and dress it up real pretty with a product from the dollar store.
In my video I mentioned that I found this by binder at the thrift store for around $.26 and though it serves it’s purpose it’s not very pretty.
If you have a not-so-pretty binder sitting around your house I’m going to show you how to use dollar store contact paper to change the look of your binder.
First I measured the three surfaces of my binder.
- The front cover
- The spine
- The back cover
I then marked off the sizes on the back of the contact paper.
Next I cut out each of the three parts to cover my binder.
Then I peeled off yet he said backing and adhere the contact paper to the cover the spine and the back cover of my recipe binder.
If you are looking for a really inexpensive way to update the look of any binder you should try this D I Y project. After covering my binder, you can see how pretty it is now.
After getting everything adhered to the binder I added a label so that I can easily locate my binder at my desk.
My recipe binder sits neatly at my desk with the rest of my home management binders.
