This craft took me about 60 minutes; it was very soothing to paint each area with acrylic paint. I wanted to create a geometric look, with triangles and bold colors. Last year I made this binder along with a pencil-case and notebook. What do you think? Do you like last year’s design, or this one?

Quick tip: when you are applying the second coat of paint, the binder might “bubble” up, but don’t worry. Once the paint is completely dry, the surface of the binder will remain smooth.
