5 DIY Binder Covers


     Trying to find the right binder for class can be difficult if you have multiple binders that are the same color. To solve that problem, you can create a binder cover that will help you sort. This DIY project contains five binder cover ideas that you can use to add some color and pop to your binders.

What You’ll Need

Here are 5 DIY Binder Covers!



     The camera binder cover is one nifty option, especially for a journalism/photography class. Print out a triangle on card stock and wrap silver washi tape along the edges. Adhere the letters to the triangle and glue the finished triangle to the scrapbook paper.



     Dots are a peppy way to add some small bursts of color to your binder. Add text by using gold adhesive letters on a strip of black card stock. Wrap gold washi tape along the edges of the cover finish off the edges.



     This triangle cover is a vibrant way to make a cover for your binders. Printing out the text for this cover saves time and gives you the option to pick from wide variety of fonts. Using silver washi tape around the text completes the look.



     A plus cover is a simplistic cover that takes little time to make. Layered card stock and black adhesive letters keep the look of this cover clean. This plus pattern to me seems like a worthy candidate for a math/science class, but could be used for any class you have.



     This cork binder cover provides several boxes of information in an organized way. Details like the location and time of your class can be added along with major deadlines for projects in the class. The whiteboard and chalkboard section could be used to work on problems or doodle during a long lecture.

     Hopefully these binder covers offer you some inspiration for your own binders. If you do make a cover, use #mattebinder to show off your design!
