Throwback Thursday- Binder Covers!

Hello, everybody!

I thought that it might be nice to do a few back-to-school themed posts, and since I'm currently having photo-uploading issues, I decided to do a throwback Thursday!

I originally posted this back in...January? Yeah, I think it was January. A lot of you seemed to like it, so I thought it would be nice to bring it back for some of the newer readers!

Without further ado, here's how to make your own DIY binder covers!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Step One : Pick a background print!

So, what I like to do is to go to Google and type in, "_______ iPhone background. " In this case, I wanted a yellow chevron print, so I type in "Yellow Chevron iPhone background". iPhone backgrounds are the best to use because they're rectangular like a sheet of paper.

Step Two : Open Word and insert your image!


Step Three : Resize the Image


To do this, all you do is resize the margins so that they are at 0, and then drag the image out to take over the entire sheet of paper.


Step Four : Celebration!! :D

Woo hoo! You've gotten this far!! It took me a good hour to figure out how to do this my first time, but then again, I didn't have a tutorial to teach me! Anyways, now you have your pattern covering your screen, so congratulations!!! It should look something like this-


Step Five : Add your text

Now, you'll want to put the subject name! All that you have to do is create a text box and drag it where you'd like on the paper. Then, type your subject name.


But don't worry, it won't look this blah for long!!! Because....

Step Six : Cute-ify Your Cover!!!!

That's right ladies, time for the best part- making it look cute!!! I like to center the title, and then put it in a cute font. My favorite font on Word is Curlz MT. It's so cute and girly!!


Step Seven : Add some symbols for flair!

I like to add some of those cute copy-and-paste symbols on either side of the title. :) For this cover, I decided to go with flowers.


And, there you go! You have a cute binder cover! I like to make these for all of my subjects.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And there you have it! I hope that you all have a lovely Thursday!
