Hi, it’s Rena from TheCheeseThief.com. School is right around the corner. I don’t know about you, but my daughter is always drawn to the mermaid and unicorn school supplies at the store. This year I decided to create a craft that would give her a custom and unique notebook. We started with a basic slime recipe but made the slime more liquid than normal so we could create the liquid waterfall look for this fun DIY mermaid notebook.
- Clear Glue
- Iridescent Confetti
- Baking Soda
- Contact Lens Solution
- Gold Vinyl
- Craft Knife or Cutting Machine
- Reclosable Bag
- Plain Journal Notebook
- Mermaid Silhouette Printed Out (Google search mermaid silhouette)
To make slime, combine one 5oz bottle of glue with 1 teaspoon of baking soda. Mix well and add 15 to 20 drops of lens solution. You want the slime more liquid than normal slime so that it will flow inside the notebook. To do this you add less lens solution, not more. If slime is too thick add water a tablespoon at a time.
Google search mermaid silhouette to find image. Print out to fit the size of your notebook. Tape printout on top of gold vinyl and cut out with craft knife. If you have a die cutting machine you can use that also.
