Star Wars Notebooks with Cricut Maker

Here's a quick Cricut craft to update some lined notebooks. These would make a great Summer craft, journal, end of school/teacher gift, or just add some fun to a notebook. Any Star Wars fan would love one!

Star Wars will always have my heart! I remember watching The Empire Strikes Back when I was only 3 or 4...it was the first movie I can remember seeing. I loved the giant elephant robots and the snow monster was so scary.  I absolutely loved and still love Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon. Who is your favorite Star Wars character?

My kids have grown up watching Star Wars as well. My oldest son always wanted to be a jedi. He loved the lightsaber duels...and especially loved the battle between Obi Wan Kenobi and General Grievous.

My youngest son was always drawn to Boba Fett. He loved the Storm Troopers too. I think he particularly like the laser blasters. The Mandalorian series spoke to his soul and he can't wait for The Book of Boba Fett.

Let's get Started!

Supplies Needed for Star Wars Notebooks:

Lined Notebooks (typically like 20 cents at back to school time)
Star Wars Images from Cricut Design Space


Step 1: Cutting Vinyl

Begin by finding the images you want to use in Cricut Design Space. Just a Brand search for Star Wars will bring up a slew of fun choices! 

Size them to the desired size, about 4 inches across and have the Cricut Maker cut them out of vinyl.

I love watching my Cricut cut out vinyl, it's so relaxing! Cut the separate images apart if you are making more than one notebook.

Step 2: Weeding the Vinyl.

Weeding can be very tedious for me, others find it very relaxing...what do you think?
Weeding is simply lifting out the parts of the vinyl you will not be using. Use the Cricut hook tool and remove the negative space of the vinyl. 

Go slowly and lift from the side, rather than pulling straight up. Watch out for those little tiny letters!

Step 3: Applying the Vinyl

Now add a piece of transfer tape to the top of the vinyl. Smooth it out firmly. Then peel the vinyl backing paper off the image. Place the vinyl design on the notebook, eyeballed in the center, and press down. 

Press firmly on the vinyl with a squeegee or credit card. Then lift up on the transfer tape gently, by rolling it back over itself. Press the vinyl down with your fingers after revealing it.

Step 4: Repeat!

Repeat the steps, using the same piece of transfer tape (save money and resources) and making as many notebooks as your heart desires.

Now these notebooks are the best in a galaxy far, far away! These would make a great handmade gift or Summer journals for the kids. 

I love the plastic notebook covers too! They are perfect and don't warp if they get a little moisture on them.
