Cut the out the shapes you want from old magazines or wrapping paper. I drew the chevron shape on grid paper and used that as a stencil. You can do the same with the diamond shape, too. However, you can also download and print out the diamond and Matryoshka doll templates by signing up to my email list for free HERE. Arrange and glue the shapes on the notebook cover. For the doll ones, remember to draw on their faces. And finally, cover your notebooks with contact paper.
